I especially like the heart ornament with the pom pom trim.

WALNUT SHELLS?

I'm going to have to scour the woods for pinecones (I don't usually see any....only acorn caps and walnut shells...any ideas what to do with those???).

Hi! I remember seeing a couple of walnut shell crafts over the years. One was a silk scarf stamped all over in patterns with a walnut shell (maybe in the book Nature Crafts for Kids). The other one that sticks out in my mind was a hanging ornament of a pom-pom mouse sleeping in a walnut shell cradle.

I got no acorns at all this year, and we almost never see walnut shells, and we have only long curved pinecones -  Sad - my nature crafting is a little bit limited right now. I DO plan on making homemade paper, embedded with seeds from my garden, to make biodegradable greeting cards, so hope springs eternal.

My mum has made a ton of those walnut shell cradles. She doesn't use pom poms for the mice though. She takes an acorn and puts a little face on it instead! I'll have to drag one out of my Christmas storage and take a picture so all of you can see how cute they are! I love those!!!

OK - I know January is, like, over, but if I make an ornament between now and Feb 1st do I, uh, 'count'? I've only just joined Craftster, but I love this idea so much :-)

Oh wow! Those are adorable!  Too bad it's supposed to snow 2 inches today....I wanna go out and get more walnut shells! :-)  The ones I find are Black Walnuts, so the shells are a bit thicker and harder than those regular English Walnuts you buy in the store (luckily, the Squirrel Family has already halved 'em for me!), but I'm sure I can do *something* with them!

It occurs to me that I have a load of beadable snowflake wireforms somewhere. I could do something with those, maybe joining them up and adding some little snowflake charms to the ends... *thinks*

Everyone is invited to my house this fall to pick up my damn nuts, harvest walnuts for ornament projects. We have a huge black walnut tree that gives us way more than the squirrels, my mother-in-law and my neighbor can keep up with.
