How to Make Glittered Acorns for Fall

After wrestling the acorns I collected

Orange glittered acorns

I was finally able to use them for a project... Click the orange link above for the rest of that silly story!

I am including links to the supplies I used so you can create this project. Just click the orange links

I began by painting the acorns orange, I created a beautiful orange here.

It has been suggested to me that you spray the acorns first with bug spray to make sure there are no worms in them. I did not and had no issues.

After letting the acorns dry I coated the painted acorns with Modge Podge, then rolled the acorns around in a very fine orange glitter.

When the beautiful little acorns were dry, I hot glued the caps back onto the acorns.

You can try these in any color for fall decorating.
