Craft: Strawberry Walnut Ornaments

As you all know by know I am nuts about anything strawberry!
How could I pass up the chance to make some strawberries to hang up on my Christmas tree?
This craft is super easy for little ones and will be a keepsake for years to come! 

  • Large whole walnuts in the shell
  • Green felt
  • 4 inches thin gold cord or ribbon
  • Paintbrushes
  • Red and black acrylic paint
  • Glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Magnet (optional) 

  1. Have your child paint a walnut red.
  2. When the paint is dry, use a very fine brush to paint tiny black dots all over the walnut.
  3. Cut a 1 1/2-inch square of green felt.
  4. Then cut a 4-pointed star from the felt. Poke a small hole in the center of the star. Glue the ends of the cord or ribbon onto one end of the walnut shell to make a hanging loop.
  5. Slip the felt star over the loop and glue it onto the walnut. Voila - a strawberry! 
  6. Or you can omit the cord or ribbon and glue a small magnet onto one side of the walnut.
