The craft I am about to share with you is absolutely brilliant, if I do say so myself. I am incredibly grateful to my wonderful friend June of Goddess Jewels for testing the idea and then sharing what she found out, and she graciously agreed to me sharing the tutorial here with you.
These little walnuts are going to amaze your little ones, they are truly magical.
On the outside they are an ordinary perfectly normal walnut, but when you crack them open you will find wonderful little fairy treasures, surprises and other lovely things!
Magical Treasure Walnuts
You will need:
A dull knife
Gold Paint (optional!)
Little gems, earrings, any other little presents or stocking fillers that are small enough to fit inside a walnut.
Begin by tapping all around the seam of your walnut with the handle of your knife. Then insert the knife between the seams of the flat end of your walnut. It should now simply twist apart, leaving the two halves intact.
Remove the walnut from the shell and brush the inside of the shell with glitter glue. Let it dry completely.
Put your treasure into one half of the walnut.
Carefully squeeze superglue around the seam of the walnut and press the two halves together. Your walnut should look just like any other ordinary walnut now!
If you like you can paint the outside with glitterglue or golden paint.
Let the nuts dry and watch your loved ones open them to find a hidden surprise!
Make lots and give them to absolutely everyone you know, I promise they will love them!
(Please don’t leave any young children unattended with them, anything that fits inside a walnut is definitely a choking hazard.)
