Now then. Acorns.
I ordered a box of 35, which seemed like a lot of acorns at the time. But acorns are small, and I knew that… but when they got here, they looked even smaller. Which means that 35 acorns is actually not that many acorns.
That’s why I’m also pairing it with leaves, to make it so that you can build a very adorable fall ornament-like garland, or something to put on a fall birthday present, or wear around your neck as a totem to daylight savings… I dunno. Acorns are very small, leaves are useful in making them stand out and be celebrated.
You can paint the tops of them so that they look like little smurf mushrooms. There are a lot of people out there making fabulous things out of acorns right now. We will explore some of these exciting options! I will also bring some spools, you can make acorn people with spool bodies. Acorns are small and cute. This is the last fall craft before we get TOTALLY IMMERSED IN HALLOWEEN MADNESS.
And yes, we will be sampling another strange seasonal product, if you want to find out what it is, please come in and have a sip.
See you at the Craft Table,
JP Craft Captain
