Isn’t this the most darling little idea – a trinket filled walnut to tuck into the Santa sock. I’ve been wondering what ‘fairy willow’, our live-in fairy, might leave Molly on Christmas morning outside her fairy door and here it is….. I’m stopping in Tesco on the way home to buy some walnuts. Thank you Helen Bird of CurlyBirds again for your inspiring 'mummy magic' ideas
Step One Bangles – Cut narrow strips of card from the cereal box, curve it around in your fingers and by slipping it on and off over your child’s knuckles decide on the diameter of the bracelet. Staple or cellotape the ends together to this diameter. Remember the bracelet shape will bulk up with the papier mache layer to allow for some give. Fold some newspaper on it’s length to create a thicker band to run over the cardboard and cellotape to the cardboard at intervals all around the curve.
