Again, while I was working out during my morning walks, I started to notice an abundance of acorns on the ground. Alright, I get it, this is the fall season. There are so many that I believe the squirrels had enough and are sick of them, smile. To my advantage, I started to collect the nicest that I could possibly find in hopes to be inspired to create something later at home.
Acorns, like any natural material, must be cleaned to ensure that no unwelcome mini creature visit your home. So here is what you do:
Materials (Under $2.00)
1 “Dollar Store” Wooded wreath size 12x11 ($1.00)
1 silk flower (.60)
2 inches of wire attached in the back needed to hang it.
There are no specific directions for this project, just glue the acorns anywhere you want to create anything that looks good to you, or, follow my slide show for my wreath pattern. Furthermore, you can use any flower of your choice or instead, use a bow, a mini fake pumpkin or mini scarecrow.
HACK: Use natural materials as much as possible, they are probably within your property or in the parking lot at work, or in your nearest county park. They are simply beautiful, they challenge and trigger your creativity and artistic skills and the best part is, they and free.
