Nutty Fall Fun

In the October issue of
Midwest Living, I saw
these cool suggestions
for Fall decorating using
nuts in a shell.
Mixed Nut Wreath-
Turn a wood wreath into
a "harvest wreath" by
gluing nuts around the
edges of the frame then
hang with brown ribbon.
Walnut Photo Holder-
Drill a hole in the top of
a walnut. Pick nuts with a
flatter bottom so it will
stand up. Cut a six-inch
piece of 18-gauge wire.
Wrap one end of the wire
twice around a wide marker,
and pinch the loops together.
Insert the other end into the
nut. Slip a photo or card
between the loops.
Harvest Vases-
Fill cylinder vases with nuts
and wheat. Roll coordinating
scrapbook paper into decorative
cuffs that slip inside the vase.
As the article says "Grab a sack
at the store and go a little nuts."
~Keep on Dreaming~
