Easy Acorn Projects

Jessica Eulo, a nanny in New Jersey, was kind enough to send us some project ideas to do with acorns. Jessica had the kids gather acorns and then paste them to cardboard in the shapes of the first letters of their names (see her photo to the left).

Acorns have the natural shape of a person’s head wearing a hat. This makes a really cute project. Just take some paint out and paint eyes, nose, and a mouth on the Acorn’s surface. You can also paint the cap.

aaaYou can paint them orange and then paint triangle eyes and nose on them to look like a Miniature Pumpkin Jack-o-Lantern. They are so cute and very easy to create.

To make acorn garland to decorate the children’s home gently remove the caps of the acorns from the nuts. Then drill two aaaholes in each cap. String embroidery floss through the holes. Then attach the acorns to the caps with a hot glue gun.

If you have other ways to use acorns be sure to share your ideas with us in comments below or on Facebook or Twitter.
