DIY Valentine Walnut Heart
Follow these steps to make your special valentine a beautiful necklace that is homemade and straight from the heart.
Step 1. Collect walnuts from near your home or pick some up at your local grocer.
Step 2. Briefly bake walnuts at low temperature to make it easier to crack them open without breaking the inside.
Step 3. Gently crack the walnut open and slowly split it in half.
Step 4. Carefully dig out the walnut meat.
Step 5. Fill the heart-shaped hole with red beeswax clay.
Step 6. Drill a hole in the top of the walnut and thread hemp-wick through the hole. Tie it off at a reasonable length.
And there you have it, a Do It Yourself Valentines necklace for that special someone.
Happy walnut hunting!
