pipe cleaner chic

deer
who knew pipe cleaners could look this cute? martha did. i like the idea of making these for hanging on the tree. take a look at how to make the lovely deer, but also iguanas, tigers, squirrels and monkeys holding a banana. that iguana would look cute as a button donning a santa hat, don't you think?

ps ... has anyone made the switch to the new blogger? i'm scared.

Hi Holly. I have an old Christmas issue of Martha Stewart Living and they did a whole series on pipe cleaner ornaments. I'll scan it and send it on soon.

These are so cute! Somehow I think an elementary student could make better deer than me though...
