I told my daughter that a little woodland fairy brought me these beautiful glitter acorns, but I think she spotted my glitter and glue on the table. Maybe I was helping the fairies a little on this one! I love, love, love my glitter acorns, and want to share with you how easy they are to make.
I bought this perfect pack of glitter-well actually three packs, at the dollar store, and it had all the right shades for fall.
I painted the bottoms with glue, and dipped them into glitter, one brown, and one bronze.
After they dried, I did the tops in a silvery brown.
I love how they look piled up together this antique amber glass dish.
I also decided to make an acorn garland with them. I chose the acorns with the best stems, and carefully tied them to some simple brown thread.
I hung the glitter acorn garland over the mirror above the fireplace, with some brown ribbons.
Here’s the final look, with the bowl of glitter acorns, and few other fall accessories. It’s a nice change from last years all white autumn mantle, check it out here.
Here’s a really easy, cute idea. Use your scrabble tiles to spell out a seasonal word.
Hope you’re enjoying these early fall days as much as I am, and perhaps, if you’re lucky a little woodland fairy might visit and leave you a few glittered acorns too! 😉
