How I made these acorn ornaments:
I painted white acrylic paint on the acorns and gold acrylic paint on the acorn caps. After allowing the acorns to dry I coated the caps in Mod Podge and sprinkled gold glitter on them. Then I applied alphabet stickers to the acorns and sealed them with more Pod Podge. Letter stamps would work well as an alternative to the stickers.
I’ve been liking a rustic look lately so I tied twine around the top of each acorn so that they can be hung from the Christmas tree. Ribbon would also be a good choice.
Kind of cute, huh? The initials are those of my son and two youngest nephews. So Lucy, now you know what part of your Christmas gift is. 😉
Painting and drying the acorns can be a tedious process. Halfway through this project inspiration struck and I discovered that a cooling rack is the perfect tool to hold the acorns while they dry.
I love crafting with natural materials. Recently I made these ornaments using some of our nature finds.
My son and his friend (both age 3) made lovely wreaths with a subtle scent and hint of shimmer.
