As the cold winter is rolling in, it’s time to bring out fall decorations to welcome the new season. This decorative acorn craft will not only spice up your home, but it’s also cheap, easy, and family friendly.

What You Will Need:

-Acorns

-A glass vase or bowl

-Acrylic paint and brushes

-Glue or hot glue gun (if needed in step 4)

Step 1:

Gather up acorns from outside and make sure they are intact. (Pick the best ones!)

Step 2:

Wash the acorns off with water until all the dirt is gone and wait for them to dry.

Step 3:

Once dry, place the acorns on a foil-lined cookie sheet. Bake at 170 degrees for 2 hours in the oven.

Step 4 (If needed):

After baking, glue the tops of the acorns back on if they fell off during any of the previous steps.

Step 5:

Once they have cooled down from the oven, paint at least one layer of paint on the acorn and wait for it to dry. You can paint more layers and designs according to your liking.

Step 6:

Place in bowl or vase and display in your home, and enjoy your fun new fall decor.
