Glitter Acorns

Last up is the easiest of all 5 projects as well as a fun one to do with kiddos. Since you don’t have to purchase acorns, if you have the other items, it could be a cost-free craft. I think this is my favorite out of the bunch. The acorns are so cute anyway, but to add glitter AHHHH!!!. Enough, enough, let’s get started…

Step 1:

First of all. Take a walk around your neighborhood or a local park and gather as many acorns as possible. You want to make sure each acorn has it’s little top.

Step 2:

Next, I washed the acorns with soap, water, and bleach. I separate the acorn from its top and laid them on a piece of foil and baked in the oven on 200-degrees for about 3hrs. This will kill any bugs on them.

Step 3:

Allow to cool, then spray paint the tops gold.

Step 4:

Next, I separated the acorns into 3 piles because I will be using 3 different glitter colors.

Once dry, you will have created this glam fall decoration. I put mine into a clear glass vase to display and actually keep them out all year long.
