These are so dreamy looking and I imagine would look heavenly on any Autumn table. This is a craft that I think Keiran would adore.


Hi Steelkitten - love this idea. I have tried to use half walnut shells before but could never get them into neat halves. How do you do that? (It is probably something very simple and I am just being gormless!) Many thanks. Daisy


Hi Daisy - I usually try and crack them gently along the natural line where the two halves meet.

If I can open up a tiny crack along this seam with a nutcracker, I can put a blunt knife in and gently twist until it pops.

Sometimes I'm successful, sometimes I'm not!
