Autumn is harvest season for almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, and walnuts. But there's no need to squirrel them away for winter. Celebrate their abundance with this festive decoration. Use any hard-shelled nuts, including acorns you gather from your own backyard.
Tools and Materials
2 bags (1 pound each) walnuts in the shell
24-inch flat wooden wreath form
1 bag (1 pound) each almonds, hazelnuts, and pecans in the shell
Nut Wreath How-To
Hot-glue walnuts to a 5-inch-long segment of 1 side of wreath form, varying direction of nuts.
Fill spaces between walnuts with the other nuts, hot-gluing them to the form and the walnuts as you work.
Repeat, working in sections, to cover the wreath form completely. Be sure to adhere nuts to inner and outer edges of wreath form to conceal it entirely.
Tie ribbon around wreath.
