by Christina from Texas


2 celery stalks
6 tablespoons peanut butter or cream cheese

1. Wash the celery and cut each stalk into thirds. Fill each celery piece with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter or cream cheese.
2. For the wings, gently push two pretzels into the filling so they connect in the middle.
3. Arrange the raisins or currants as eyes, nose and mouth.
4. For antennae, push the slivered almonds into the filling.
