Old potato mashers painted for Christmas, a Santa and a Snowman. The mashed potatoes are represented by sheet music paper chain.
Closer view of the Santa
The hat of the snowman is made from an old sweater it has a wire in it to hold it. A hole was drilled through the handle for the wire arms and the tiny santa is a fishing sinker.
