What a neat idea...and this type of recyling is my kind of crafts. Also something the kids can make. I believe in getting the kids involved in crafting. Keeps them out of mischief, and helps to develop self esteem and pride in accomplishments. You cannot start this early enough.

I strung the peanuts and then paintd them with gold and silver spray paint (do this outside and in a place where the paint won't be blown onto the car,etc!)then used them as garlands on the tree. Looked great.

This is a wonderful; earth friendly x-mas decoration. Have you ever sprayed them with adhesive spray or dipped in non-toxic craft glue and then sprinkled with glitter? They would look lovely hanging around the overhang on a porch. Glistening and glittering like icicles. Very creative!
