DIY: Nut Garland

What You’ll Need:

  • Nuts (walnuts, almonds, chestnuts and hazelnuts)
  • Dremel drill with 1⁄8″ bit
  • Waxed string


  1. Gather a bowl of mixed nuts with the shells on.
  2. Using a Dremel, drill a hole through one of each variety of nut
  3. Cut the waxed string to the desired length and tie a knot at one end.
  4. String the nuts onto the garland, then measure their total width. This will help give you an idea of how many nuts are needed.
  5. Once the nuts are drilled, string them onto the garland and tie off with a knot.
  6. Finish the look by adding an ornament at each end.
