The highlight and inspiration for this year's Christmas theme (other than the fact it's been a nutty year) were the huge walnuts I decorated to go on everyone's gift.
I have used walnuts as decorations before, but I have never given any away.
This is the first time I have glittered them too.
I picked the walnuts from my grandmother's English walnut trees over Thanksgiving.
I soaked the walnuts to get the shell gunk off and then I cracked them and dug out the nuts that were still good.
Each walnut got a loop of velvet ribbon stuck on top before I glued them back together.
After the glue dried, I spread glue all over the walnuts and then sprinkled them with glitter.
I made a lot of glittered walnuts!
