What to do with giant Texas-size acorns……

Turn them into ornaments, of course! As promised, here are four more decorated, Texas-size, acorns.  These will look cute on someone’s Christmas tree! I left my messy, painted hand in the pic so you can see just how big these acorns are! Hope you like them!

Products used:

  • Texas-size acorn (provided by my neighbor)
  • Paints: DecoArt and Anita’s acrylic paints
  • DecoArt Snow Writer (for around the roof of birdhouse and mice hats
  • Tan and Pink Felt
  • Red, Blue and Green Hemp Twine
  • Small White and Tan Pom-Poms (feet, tail and hat ties)

Hey, if you have any other suggestions for what I can do (be nice, now) with the rest of my supply of acorns, I would appreciate the feedback! Thanks for stopping by! ……..Luv…..M

    Wow, great idea! I might have to steal it for my kids craft class at the library as we have some darn big acorns in Maine too! You could also paint them orange (remove the caps first) and make jack o lanterns or fall pumpkins. Or spray paint them gold and silver and put them in a brown on display. I think you are supposed to bake them for 30 minutes at 400 in the oven to be sure there are no bugs in them.
