Then I hot glued the acorns on. You can measure them out if you want...probably a good idea. :) But..I didn't. The acorns vary in shape and size so I found eyeballing it worked fine...but also was probably the reason for what I am about to show you...
As you can see...
...if you look too closely you can see gobs of glue. Whoops...but only if you look too closely. :) Scoot back already! :) Shoo!
Tip: If you freshly picked these acorns right before making this craft, expect the nut portion to lose moisture and contract a little causing it to fall out of its little hat. It is simple to just hot glue it back in.
If you are wanting more acorn crafts. Dana just posted about them today too! Go here to check it out. She said to bake them before using them because of the grubs some of you mentioned will crawl out. I didn't have that problem but it might be better to just bake them anyway. I will next time! :)
I added some Indian corn and leftover acorns to my glass vases.
MADE wreath back up. Sigh. I love that thing. My mirror is now painted white so it looks even fresher. This picture is from this post here about another type of wreath I did in the Spring.
And that is it! I think the only decoration additions I will be able to stand for the rest of the month is kid crafts hanging from the art line in our kitchen. :)
Happy Thanksgiving...decorating! :)
