Hurray, it's autumn! The acorns, leaves and chestnuts fall out of the trees. You're gonna pick them up too, aren't you, making these oak dolls? Take the matchsticks or cocktail sticks out of the closet, and don't forget to use a pin. You need them to pierce small holes in the acorns and chestnuts. Punch them in the places where the arms and legs are supposed to be.


Tip: Cut a chestnut in half so that it gets flat feet, so they can stand firmly. Don't forget to give them nice natural hats and hats. By gluing wobbly eyelets, they become even funnier!

And also cute spiders and even monkeys from chestnuts! Punch a hole (with nail or hand drill) through the entire chestnut, so you can insert the chenille thread for the arms and legs!
