It is tricky to split a walnut exactly in half.
I found that using a knife and tapping it with a mallet, makes it easier.
There are many projects I would like to use the successful walnut shells for.
And another idea I have wanted to try for a while...
to make a few walnut candles for the centre
of our dinner table this Autumn.
*Hint~ to pour evenly, I placed a dot of homemade playdough under each shell,
before pouring. And while cooling.
Little fingers enjoyed helping with this and with adding the wicks to the cooling wax.
