Video: How to Make Squirrel Tail Christmas Ornaments

Looking to add some class to your Christmas tree? I can help you do it. Utilizing wild game for food is the primary reason we hunt, but for eons hunters have memorialized the chase by using non-edible parts of the animal for ornamentation. In this video, you’ll learn how to make two types of Christmas tree ornaments using squirrel tails.

The first step is deboning the squirrel tail. Second, I salt the tail to dry out the skin. This will preserve it for a few years. With a few dollars worth of Christmas bows, twine, and wire, the whole ornament comes together beautifully.

Happy holidays, you hillbillies.
