To create original souvenirs, you will need items that can be found in every house. The only thing to be taken care of in advance is the chestnuts themselves. In the rest it is necessary to take toothpicks and usual clay. So, to create a funny bunny need just a couple of chestnuts. The one that is smaller will become a preparation for the hero's head. Spout, mouth, eyes and ears can be perfectlyperform with clay. However, it is worthwhile to be prepared for the fact that clay on a smooth surface of chestnuts is weak. Therefore, to fix a large enough ears is to use toothpicks. They will allow to fasten a detail on a fruit well. When the chestnut has not had time to harden, it is possible to make apertures by the toothpick itself, more precisely - its sharp edge. The dried chestnut will be treated with an awl. Due to the fact that the toothpicks themselves are longer than required, they can be broken off a little. But it is important to make them identical in size. Wooden fragments after installation in the prepared holes are covered with plasticine. You need to try to give them the shape of a hare ears. This is how the head is made. When starting to perform the body, we must take a larger chestnut tree. A ponytail and paws join it. Then two chestnuts are connected. This can be done by using plasticine or a toothpick.

What is important, with toys, whose head is fixed in this way, children love to play. After all, fragments can turn without threatening to disintegrate. After the chestnuts are fastened, you canperform the wings of the bird and its tail. To complement the image it would be nice to make a funny cap or other accessories. Everything depends on imagination. Nearby it is recommended to create a nest of dry twigs and clay.

In addition to the already familiar materials, for its manufacture beads will be useful. But they need kinds of them that have a wide opening that can easily hold a toothpick. You will also need dry twigs. To keep the fragments firmly and could not collapse in the fidgets, you need a super-moment glue. The branches become horns. On the legs for fun put on beads.
