The gumnuts are drying out on the branches of the gum trees. Turning from emerald green to the silvery brown we know so well. I even found a banksia seed pod!
The shapes are just so perfect for gumnut babies inspired by Snugglepot and Cuddlepie

I had a selection of stitched up felt hats and beads for the children to choose from and a glue gun at the ready. We made some for the school fete and hung them on a fallen branch. We sold out!
These are a few of the ones we kept for gifts. Watch out for the Banksia Men!
