Faux Acorn Christmas Ornaments
Do they look familiar?
Originally they were old Easter Eggs, then I turned them into Fall Acorn decorations (you can find the tutorial on my Hometalk profile), & now I have repurposed them again & made them into Christmas ornaments!
Don't you love double duty decor?!
Hot Glue Gun & Glue
Christmas Ornament Hooks
Mod Podge - optional
Glitter - optional
I spray painted my Easter Eggs with gold, silver, & chalkboard paint. Then I topped them with twine & pinecone pieces, & hot glued them along with an ornament hook & a little twig to act as the stem.
I even have a few Easter egg acorns that I covered in glitter this fall that I might turn into Christmas ornaments too!
Oh & the best part, you can even put little gifts into the center of the acorn if you don't glue the pieces together. Isn't that fun?

That gives me an idea. She said u can put a gift in the acorns if you don’t glue them. U can turn it into a advent calendar.
