Golden Walnuts of Good Fortune

The Victorians often decorated their Christmas trees with gilded fruit and nuts. Walnuts were very popular. Fortunes were sometimes inserted to be found on Christmas morning – not unlike getting a fortune in a cookie after a Chinese meal!

You can make this charming tradition your own by making some for your tree. See how it is done at the Housewife on a Shoestring Blog. They would look beautiful on a Christmas Wreath as well.
