As you guys know from the eco-friendly wreath for fall post, I'm super-de-duper ready for fall! I've also become a wee bit obsessed with decorating with acorns. I've shared a Recycled Paper Acorn Banner over at Crafting a Green World and I already have some other acorn projects in mind, too. So... here's a fun, easy, and sparkly acorn project that I think you'll love!
What You Will Need:
1. A narrow embroidery hoop
2. Burlap or other fabric
4. Recycled cardboard. I used a cereal box.
7. Hot glue/hot glue gun
How To Do It:
1. Put your fabric into the embroidery hoop.
2. Cut off any excess fabric around the edges.
3. Draw an acorn top on the recycled cardboard. Then, cut it out.
4. Spread glue onto the cardboard. Make sure you thin it out as much as possible. I used a small paintbrush to spread it around.
5. Glitter it up! I mixed three different glitters together -- gold, orange, and red -- mostly because I couldn't find brown glitter. I lovvveeeddd the result, though, because it screams fall!
6. Once the top has dried, hot glue it to the top of the embroidery hoop.
Ta-Da! Now you have a super adorable and sparkly acorn. You could hang a few from the ceiling, hang it on the wall, or use it as a wreath on your front door.
What would you do with a sparkly acorn?
