Isn't he/she cute? This rat almost made itself from the pine needles of a Christmas wreath I made two weeks ago. These needles are everywhere and rather than vacuuming (bo-oring) I made a rat, much more fun.
So here is a challenge to anyone out there - make a new year's rat out of anything lying around -pine needles, pine cones, wrapping ribbon or other.
Now how do I to preserve this thing?
