We used nail polish as a base coat on our acorns as we love the jewel like colours and sheen that it provides, but there is no reason why you shouldn't use whatever paint you have to hand.

We stuck pins into one end of our acorns so that we had something to hold on to while we painted them, it is also worth planning where you will leave them to dry before you start, as nail polish in particular takes some time - we used a florist oasis to stick the pin end in to to support ours.

Once our base coats were dry (we gave ours two coats) we used a combination of more nail polish, sharpies and glitter to add more detail to our jewels in the form of spots and swirls, and then stuck their caps on.

We are planning on making a Twig Christmas Tree embellished with Epson salts and lights which these little jewels will hang on.

As you can tell from the lack of words these really are the simplest things to make, but we think they make adorable decorations!

    What a cute was to reuse some of the acorns laying on the ground each year. I’ll have to remember this I’m sure the grandkids would love to decorate them.

      Aren’t they sweet Linda, I always think we should be able to think up more ways to use acorns – they are always so perfect looking!
