It’s a wonderful thing when Mother Nature provides us with art supplies – in today’s case, autumn’s emblematic nut, the acorn. Today’s how-to crafting project takes these fallen oak tree kernels and dresses them up in glitter, then places them center stage as a decorative holiday show piece to be enjoyed all season long.

Like the apple, the acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree!
