DIY Christmas Craft #9

Forget fortune cookies, how about fortune walnuts! Here's what you will need:

  • walnuts
  • sharp knife
  • skewer or butter knife
  • paper
  • marker
  • thin ribbon
  • glue
  • paint brush
  • gold paint
Run the tip of a sharp knife around the seam of the nut and twist the blade to start splitting the nut open. Use a skewer or butter knife to clean out the meat. Paint the outsides of the shell with gold paint and let them dry. While you are waiting, write fortunes on strips of paper, roll them up and tie them with ribbon.

Glue a 5" long piece of ribbon to the top inside edge of the shell. Place a fortune scroll inside the cavity of the shell and glue the two halves together. Press together for 15 seconds to make sure there is a seal and let dry before hanging.

Thanks Family Fun

Duct Tape...It's Not Just For MacGyver Anymore

I came across this crazy site the other day called Duct Tape Fashion , which specializes in duct tape. Wait... I don't think I explained myself properly, there's a website dedicated to duct tape, and all things duct tape related. Ok, so maybe I did explain myself properly, WTF...really, duct tape. Well it seems duct tape isn't just for HVAC specialists and MacGyver anymore, it seems people are using duct tape to create all kinda of weird items like wallets, baseball caps, hats, bags, bracelets, purses, visors, and roses. Don't believe me, well check out some of these pics I got... Wallets Baseball Cap Hats Bags Bracelets Purses Visors Roses By: Mass
