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.

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! πŸ˜‰
