Posted By Tipnut On September 28, 2011 @ 11:57 am In Crafty Ideas | 2 Comments
If you have access to an abundance of free acorns, lucky you! They can be used in a variety of ways and make lovely pieces for both Fall and Winter decorations. Here are a few different crafts you can make along with tips for preparing them first (cleaning and drying). Have fun!
Just as with pine cones , acorns need to be washed and debugged before using in crafts. The process is simple:
Fall Basket : Paint a woven basket brown then hot glue acorns around the bottom (both with and without caps). Fill basket with florist’s foam, fruit and Fall foliage.
Two Projects : Instructions for making an acorn mirror (or frame) and napkin rings made with acorns and oak leaves.
Cap Ornaments : Styrofoam balls are covered with acorn caps and decorated with craft paint, glitter, ribbon and jute twine.
Christmas Tree Craft : A cardboard cone is painted brown then acorns are hot glued to the outside.
Magnets : The caps are removed then all the meat is taken out so a magnet can be inserted. Fill space with hot glue and replace cap.
