If you would like to make an autumn nut garland for yourself, it's really easy. You'll need a variety of nuts. I threw in some cinnamon sticks and small gold jingle bells for fun. You also need a craft drill, a needle and something to string them with. Any type of string or cord will do. I used spun wool because I like the warm, fuzzy organic look of it. Most importantly, use a vice.
Not being the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to tools, I tried to drill a hole in the nut while simply holding it in my hand. Heck, it's a tiny little drill and a tiny little nut...how hard could it be? HARD! The nut flew across the room with the force of a bullet shot from a gun. Thinking the first time must have been a fluke, I tried it several more times this way before I realized it wasn't going to work. Like I've said before, I'm a hands-on learner. I'm fortunate I didn't drill THROUGH my hand.
Hence, the good vice. It helped me get the job done in no time. And it really was a lot of fun.
