We have a tree in the front that drops a ton of acorns each year. My oldest went out one day and came back with a small bucket full of them. I asked her what she wanted to do with them and she said make a Acorn necklace.
She was just going to tie a string to them and that was it, but I thought why not kick it up a notch and really make them pretty so I went out and got some glitter. I have to say that the girls LOVE glitter. They both had so much fun making these and were so cute doing it. At first I thought my little one would have trouble with this project but she didn’t I just told her to paint the glue on the bottom of the acorn and she only missed in a few spots. And she did great with the glitter.
To try and keep the glitter mess at a minimum I had the girls work over paper plates and that really helped a lot, we still had some glitter on the table and floor but no where near the mess I thought we would have.
The girls ended up making about 10 necklaces and my oldest brought them to school and passed them out to some of the teachers, her friends, and saved a special one for grandma!
These turned out so pretty I think they would make a great gift for the holidays or birthdays that the kids can make on their own.
