PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – What can you make from seeds, weeds, twigs, pods, plus other bits and berries from the garden? You’ll be amazed and inspired by the handmade critters you’ll find at the Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford through January 6th.

The White House tree ornaments were sold the following year, kicking off what’s become an annual critter sale tradition to benefit the Museum.

Volunteers dedicate a day each week from March to December to create all these adorable critters – if you’re good with a glue gun and interested to join them, you can apply by sending an email to volunteer coordinator Donna Gormel at .
