£1.50 Charity Shop Of Very Strange Bits ………

I bought a very odd bag of bits the other day from my very favourite Evesham charity shop, which for £1.50, I thought might be worth a punt ………


……. especially when I spotted a few of these “round, holey things” in amongst the pine cones etc……..


…….. thinking perhaps they might work as another version of my walnut snowman tree decorations?


It really was a bag of the weird and wonderful, some sort of very large, ornamental potpourri?  I just don’t have a clue!


These are what originally I caught my, no idea what they are, but I am sure I can get a couple of snowman scene decorations out of them. Shame there weren’t a few more of the middle sized ones, but hey ho.


I am assuming that these (above) could be gourds (?) which I think will be painted orange and turned into pumpkins, with a Fimo stalk added to the smaller one.


These are obviously some sort of nut, and again I think, if I can drill a hole in the top could become small, hanging pumpkins …….


…… but what on earth are these?  They are sort of creepy and quite large?  I am thinking mysterious underwater caves with mermaids and treasure chests, but to be honest, at the moment, wouldn’t have a clue where to begin.


I’m not sure if I’m going to keep/use absolutely everything in the bag, I have more than enough pine cones and whatever they are (above), they are not really singing to me …….. but all suggestions of what any of them might be, or ideas as to how I might use them will be very gratefully received!

The large "creepy" items look a bit like oyster shells. You could put a "pearl" inside and add to a dish of sand that holds other shells and perhaps a candle.
