DIY WALNUTS

Every year around this time I get stuck with baskets full of untouched walnuts. They look so pretty in the festive season and taste great too. But I never eat as many as I intend. I have tried cracking them open for the birds but when it's christmas in Australia it is also Summer which means the birds have their own bbq parties. And why eat nuts when you can eat like a king? So instead of throwing them out I gave them a make-over to match my home all year around. What did you do with the left over nuts?
