More acorn craft ideas
Depending on the number of acorns you gathered this Fall season, you can go further and create more acorn crafts for Thanksgiving. For example, if you arrange some branches in a vase, hot glue ribbons to the acorns and hang them on to the branches; this will make you a nice Thanksgiving tree.
Another idea would be to hot glue acorns on a piece of raffia and use it as garland to decorate the window. The range of ideas is wide and you’re just limited by your imagination.
Tip: if you’re skilled and patient, you can even draw tiny ears, muzzle, tails on a white sheet of construction paper, paint them, cut your forms out and glue them on the acorns to feature animals.
