We have tons of Oak trees at home…front yard and back. This is the time of the year when the acorns fall like rain. It’s pretty when the driveway is filled with acorns. We bought a Billy Goat vacuum which makes cleaning these up a breeze. So before Nayeem got to cleaning the yard we collected as many acorns we could.
I showed Nadia a perfect acorn and she collected dozens. We left them out in the sun to dry and Nadia worried that some squirrels would steal them…so Ozzie stood guard 🙂
We then heat them to get rid of any dampness and bugs. Put them all into a jar and our acorns were ready for painting. We used acrylic paint and the tips served as perfect handles to hold on to while painting. We let them dry and then left them in this bowl. A little bit of fall for indoor decor.
I guess we may use these for some future projects.
Hope you are having a great fall.
