On a recent walk with my son, we started collecting some acorns. By the time we’d got home our pockets were full and we each had a project in mind.
First we went and collected even more acorns from our garden – we wanted to make sure we had enough!
To make the acorn wreath, we used:
- Thick cardboard
- White glue
- Mod Podge (optional, but recommended)
While F worked on his idea for a butterfly outline with acorns glued on, I cut out a wreath shape from thick cardboard. I later added another layer of cardboard to stabilize the wreath, so I’d recommend adding it on at the start instead. I added a generous amount of glue to the wreath and started attaching acorns.
When he had finished with his own project, he came to help me.
We let the wreath dry overnight, then cover it in a layer of Mod Podge (we used the washable children’s version). This stage is optional but it gave the acorns a glossy shine and helped the acorns stick together.
Once everything had dried I added a bow and hanging ribbon, then hung it on our front door.
