I had an enormous pile of acorns and I was determined to use them in my Fall decor. After some deliberation, I decided that I liked the woodsy look of the nuts but the caps of the acorns could use a little pizazz.
First I tried spray glue and glitter, but it looked a little too clumpy. So I decided to go with spray paint and glitter. I ended up using a bronze glitter spray, white paint, and gold metallic spray paint.
I took the caps off the acorns, sprayed them, and then hot glued them back onto the nuts. I loved the way the acorns turned out! The bronze spray glitter gave the acorns a natural and sparkly look that I really love.
The gold caps look awesome on the acorns!
The white paint that my husband had on hand also looked really nice with the brown of the acorn nuts.
I also painted some pinecones and put them in my apothecary jars with the acorns. I think they really add a little something extra. I found some dark pinecones that are almost black and since they were a nice color already, I paired with the bronze pinecones.
I love the way my apothecaries turned out!
I think they really add a natural, woodsy look to my fall decor.
So what do you think of my acorn apothecaries?
