Everything outside is golden! This fall the trees look spectacular. The smoky purple ash trees and blazing orange maples.They are so inspiring. In the fall mood I decided to start making more nuts again. They seem to fit the season. This time around I put rattles in them so they even sound like nuts.
The one on the left is the largest one I've ever made. I really like the fact that it is larger than life size. It draws more attention to it as a work of art rather than just a nut.
Everyone keeps trying to open them though! So maybe I should make some that come apart in the future. I could see them breaking a lot more often if I do that, however, because they do tend to roll a little. Well, I still like them as fall decorations. The only problem is that I give them as gifts for Christmas. Not exactly the best timing. I really wish I had more time to make them so I could have a stock of them to sell. Maybe my project for next summer...
Enjoy your autumn (or spring!) wherever you are!
