Dollhouse Miniature Walnuts



This week for Trash to Treasure Thursday I thought I would show you another little trick that has been around for years. I had forgotten all about this until it was mentioned on one of the online mini groups I am a member of. I am not sure why it slipped my mind but I should have shared it a long time ago.

Coriander seeds should be fairly easy to get your hands on. I know it is used in cooking a lot around my house. If you aren't familiar with it in the seed form you might know the fresh herb as cilantro, which is a fairly common herb in several styles of cooking.

You really only need a few seeds for your dollhouse display so hopefully you have some of these in the kitchen cabinet if not ask your friends they may have them.

As with any real food product in the dollhouse you will need to be on the watch for critters of all kinds that decide you have provided these for them. Just check on them regularly and it should be fine.

You might also try sealing the seeds into the bowl with some matte finish sealer like Mod Podge. I think that will help keep things out of your display.


For a bowl you can see from the video you can use just about anything, I couldn't find a bowl today but a wooden button did a fine job. Just check your stash of buttons, bead and wooden shapes to see what you come up with.
