Fun autumn craft: pretty painted acorns

4 images

This pretty craft is such a nice autumnal activity to do with the kids, all it requires is a little bit of painting, glitter-pouring, and some creativity!

It’s a great excuse to get the kids out and about in the fresh air hunting for some acorns to make their craft. However, if the thought of catching a chill in the local park doesn’t appeal to you, you’ll be pleased to hear you can actually buy acorns on eBay for just a couple of pounds.

Once you’ve learnt how to paint acorns, you can use them to decorate your house, place them in a bowl on your coffee table and the glittery ones will really twinkle in the light! You could even string them together to make a pretty acorn garland. Enjoy!
