Acorn Ornaments


A while back, I wrote about collecting some large acorns from a swamp chestnut oak. When I took them to school to give to each child, we decided to make them into ornaments. I had to hot glue the caps back on. The googly eyes and pompom noses were attached with Tacky Glue. The mouths they painted on with  acrylic craft paint that has a tiny nozzle in the bottle. We used white label dots to put their names on the gold wire hangers.

A bonus was all the big acorn weevils that came drilling their way out of several of the acorns. ( We did not use those for the ornaments!)
