Christmas Conker Decorations

image

Have you got piles of conkers around your home…left over from Autumn collections!! We have soooo many so I thought reusing them would be a fab idea.

I did wonder if I should drill holes in them and soak them in vinegar ready for some full on conker fights. Maybe not! Conkers on string and little people swinging them around is just a recipe for disaster.

Penguin has been very excited about Christmas so I thought we’d do some early preparations (early at the time of making- not blogging!). So we made some Christmas tree decorations.

As Little Missy loves to thread it made sense to drill holes in the conkers (easier than I anticipated).

We got some wool, tied a knot about halfway down and threaded.

We then dipped part of the wool in a pva glue and paint mix and wrapped it around the conkers. Then came the glitter…

and voila…

Our conker collection is still rather large! Have you got any ideas for more conker crafts or activities?
