It was a sad weekend in my part of the world. More on that later when I feel up to it. But for now, here's what I finished with my acorns on Friday night.

Acorns: Plucked from the ground and cooked at 175 degrees for a while to dry them.
Wreath: Wooden with the ability to put a photo or sign in the middle. $4 at Walmart.
Paint: Martha Stewart, sample size ($2.95), "Blueberry Pie."
Glue: Low heat hot glue.

It is tied outside with a white ribbon on our door. The photo does not do it justice. I should take a photo of the door in natural light instead of this over-exposed flash photography photo.... I'm also considering using poster putty to make it not bang against the door whenever the door is opened. I'm worried about losing acorns.

  1. Those are a lot bigger than most of the acorns we find around here! And I love them purple! You could spray them a different color and use it for a ton of holidays!!
