Acorn Intervention & Make-over

These acorn twins were desperately in need of a make-over.  Peering into a clearance bin at Ollie’s, their disheveled appearance couldn’t hide the cuteness potential.  Poor things, their leaves were crumpled and the pinecone accessories all tangled up.  Potted acorn orphans – I had to get involved.  And at 49 cents each, I knew I’d get a huge return on my investment.  Acorns make me smile.         

                    BEFORE I painted the terra cotta pots with craft paint in an antique gold color and hot glued more leaves to the base.  After detangling the branches and a quick fluff, they were ready to join the party with the other Fall decor items.

                    AFTER  acorns_Page_0I was very excited to score one of the coveted Dollar Store white ceramic pumpkins!!!  Contented sigh.  The rich colors, variety of textures, and the cheapness of it all brings me to a happy place.

I don't know why more people don't decorate with acorns. Beautiful!
