DIY Chestnut Ornaments

Hello! I hope you stuffed yourselves silly last week. I know I did. Like, I mean it got absurd there at the end. But let’s talk about happier things. Today I’m really excited to share with you a little something that I put together for the Bijou Market. Chestnut Ornaments *not recommended for roasting on an open fire. My girl Heather collected all of these amazing Chestnuts (at least that’s what I’m calling them) from around the neighborhood. I then poached her supply and started drilling holes in them. They are SO easy to make, I can show you in pictures.

*Both ends of the string go through the eye of
the needle. You’ll need a big needle.  I used baker’s
twine and a leather needle.

 That’s it! SOOO easy, plus you get to use a drill. My new favorite toy. Also, I made you these little tags you can download and print to attach to them, should you wish to gift them!
