Fabric and Twine Acorns

6 Materials
Make an easy Fall decoration with leftover supplies! Coat plastic Easter eggs with hot glue and then cover with fabric remnants and bits of twine to create Fabric and Twine Acorns!
I used a leftover plastic Easter egg and coated it, one side at a time, with hot glue.
Next, I smoothed the fabric remnant onto the hot glue.
I glued down any loose folds to make it as smooth as possible.
I cut an arm's length of twine and wrapped it around the top of the egg, attaching it with glue along the way.
I glued a small twig to the top of the acorn as the stem.
Happy Fall! A beautiful Fabric and Twine Acorn!

    Thank you, Marwal9! The golden acorns were easy to paint. . . two coats in front of a good movie the other night!
