I decided to go with frogs. I usually try to make 20 beanbags, but did 40 this year.
A couple of metres of fabric and nearly 6 kg of lentils!
I changed the eyes this year too - I sewed on felt circles and then added black wool - safety and economical reasons....safety eyes are a bit too pricey. These sold out super quick!
The apple magnets are cardboard with fancy paper and a strip of magnet on the back.
The home sweet home garlands, again, cardboard and paper. Fiddly, but more economical to make than fabric goods. I punched metal eyelets at the ends for strength and used hessian string. I used Sizzix dies to make this paper craft,
