I fully intended to post this before Thanksgiving, before everyone was decorating for Christmas. I was busy enjoying our Thanksgiving break and so here it is; belated.
Several months back we went on an acorn gathering outing with my family. I had learned in the past that you have to wash and bake acorns in order to make sure they are clean and free of pests. I baked them for 3 hours at 200 degrees. Then they sat in a zip lock bag on my counter for six weeks next to the glue gun.
I brushed a few of the acorns with paint just to mix things up a little bit. Then I began hot gluing them onto a wreath form. I love how it turned out and I’m glad I stuck with it and finally finished it. My daughter updated it for me for Christmas by adding some fresh pine branches behind it and it looks great.
