I love a nice walk in the Autumn. The leaves are beautiful, the mornings sharp and it is ok to spend all evening curled up under a blanket. I usually collect a few conkers when I’m out walking but I’m often stuck for things to do with them. These 5 ideas are good for all ages, and not just for autumn – I find conkers in my home all year round somehow!
1. Conker Reindeer
Pictures need no translation which is lucky because my Polish is not all that!
2. Conker Worm
Fresh conkers are nice and soft to push a nail or sharp screwdriver through. This little worm is perfect for those kids who love threading.
3. Painted Conkers
Creative in Chicago made these gorgeous painted conkers. If you can doodle, you can have some too.
4. Conker Moth and Spider Deterrents
Did you know that conkers are supposed to deter moths and spiders? If that is just a myth this little wreath makes a nice little ornament in it’s own right.
5. Conker Painting
Messy time! Control the chaos by doing this on a tray and you can make your own wrapping paper in no time.
If you try any of these out please let me know. I’d love to hear how you get on.
