I found a vintage Heirloom wooden walnut nut/candy dish made by the Lebanon Supply Company. It has a gold metal handle and is in perfect condition–no chips, no dings. I spent $.99 and it’s going for $15 on ebay! Don’t you love a bargain?
It was brand new in the 1960s and brings up visions of cocktail parties with martinis and mixed nuts.
If cocktail parties aren’t your cup of tea, fill it with green candy for a St. Patrick’s celebration.
I wrapped the base with a chenille stem and twisted another one into a shamrock shape.
Make a little table runner from green burlap. Cut a piece of the fabric in any size. Make fringe edges by pulling off threads, one at a time.
It’s easy to design and create your own textile since burlap has a very loose weave. Pull out more threads in the middle, near the sides or wherever the creative mood takes you. The best part? No sewing or gluing necessary!
