The nut wreath how-toI wanted to share my how-to on making a nut wreath. Now while Martha Stewart makes one of her own, sometimes it's nice to see more pictures. All while knowing that anyone can actually make something of hers and have it come out right (ie the tissue paper puff disaster).
This is a wreath I wanted to make for fall, but the dang nuts in the shell don't come out till later in the fall season. Oh well, at least I'll have it for next year.
What you'll need:
~Mixed nuts (in shell)*
~MDF wreath form
~Hot glue gun
~Strip of ribbon
~Spray on clear coat (optional)
*For the 6" wreath form I used about a one pound of nuts.
Start placing and hot gluing the nuts onto the form. I started with the larger nuts (walnuts and Brazil nuts) and then filled in with the smaller nuts (pecans, almonds and hazelnuts).
Glue nuts to base form and to each other for a secure hold.
