hello to everyone.
i once saw somewhere where you string up shell nuts with string and make pretty garland to adorn windows,christmas trees,mirrors, bookshelves etc.
i believe they took a small drill bit and drilled a hole across the nut and strung it up with dental floss. might look pretty with other dried items like cranberries etc. or paint a nut red every 10th nut or so.or add fabric ribbons in between every 10th nut or so for a country flair. or pinecones,or dried leaves for fall.
i also think they would make a pretty wreath. my grandmother used to make pinecone wreaths all the time with wire wreath forms. perhaps you could use grapevine wreaths and make a garland of pecans and then wrap it around the wreath. then maybe tuck in and hot glue other natural items like springs of dried herbs,pine needle sprigs,pinecones, dried berries,colored eucylyptus springs ,oak leaves, etc. whatever strikes your fancy.
wreaths or soooo much fun and versatile. it is hard not to become addicted to making them once you start. it is especially fun to see how many fun and creative (frugal) ideas you can come up with for materials.
sincerely-sheila ann anderson
