Acorn Jewels

Every fall when we pull out these acorn jewels that the older kids made in 2013, Miss Clementine asks to create some as well. 

In August, I asked her godmother (who happens to live in Illinois by loads of oak trees) to mail us a box of acorns and acorn tops.

She was happy to accommodate :)

Color the tops in with marker.

Place in rice (to keep the tops steady while you fill with glue).

Patience now :)  These take about two days to dry completely and transform into beautiful acorn jewels.

(24 hours later and still wet)

These are so easy and fun to make, adding color to your autumn days!  

(I originally found the idea over on Pinterest, but the link is no longer available.)
