Homemade Acorns

 

My mother made these cute little fabric acorns in less than an hour.

How to: Collect acorn caps (not the whole acorn) from outside (very plentiful this time of year) from your oak trees or nature walk.  Next, cut a circle of silky fabric with sheen (2.5 inch circle)  and insert the cotton ball, Fold fabric around cotton ball and hand sew the ends or hot glue them together and lastly hot glue the top of the acorn to the fabric ends. Easy !

Display Ideas: Show off these adorable acorns on a cute platter. Display them on your coffee table.
