We haven’t had a dish of nuts to just crack and eat for snacks for quite awhile. I was thinking an official nut dish would be nice so I looked on Amazon, EBay and Mercari.
I found some nice ones but they seemed awfully expensive for a seasonal use item. So I wondered how to make a nut bowl that would contain the mess and still look nice.
I had this Longaberger basket with a liner and it works great for the nuts.
To hold the crackers and picks, I used a little cup, also something we already had.
Grandsons especially think it is fun to crack nuts.
After looking at this photo, I think it’s time to clean out the shells and maybe refill it.

I did think it was a useful article and might be of interest to some of y’all.
