|(This is a great idea for a party!)
You will need:
Split and empty as many nuts as you will need. In each nut, place a tiny gift: a charm, a miniature, a pair of earrings, a tiny china figurine, a necklace chain or bracelet... even folded currency - these are just a few ideas.
- whole walnuts, halved and cleaned
- tiny gifts
- basket or other container
- decorations (optional)
Then carefully glue the nut halves back together, being careful not to drip any glue back into the shells where it might stick to the treasure.
You may then decorate the nuts if you wish, or leave them plain... a dusting of gold spray or pearl finish is nice.
Mound into a pretty basket or box and pass around, letting each gues choose a nut. Later, set out some nut crackers and let your guests have fun finding who got the BIG treasure!
