Now I have a walnut. Ho – Ho – Ho
Getting into the festive spirit I though it would be nice to share a few pictures of a bauble I carved this year. It started life as a walnut netsuke based on studio Ghibli’s classic character Totoro but I abandoned it after I noticed a hairline crack.
After erecting our Christmas tree the inspiration hit me to salvage the failed netsuke as it would look rather festive on the tree. After drilling a few extra holes and threading some ribbon through them my Toto-nut bauble is complete and looks rather grand on my tree.
I think I may make some more festive nut baubles for next year.
