Decorating With Acorns



A Chill in The Air!  




Fall has finally arrived in North Texas needless to say I am thrilled!! I scrounged around in my attic and found all of my Fall treasures -feeling satisfied, I plugged in my little scentsy pot with cinnamon wax, flipped the switch on some wall sconces and settled in to Fall decorating!  Did I mention that I love, love, love this time of the year!!

Please join me for some decorating adventures-


The walk to Find the Acorns-

Well, you see I enjoy walking, not only is it good for my body it is 
good for my soul.  I find it is a time to reflect, be thankful and observe what Mother Nature has to share with us.  On my most recent walk I discovered two Oak trees, and although they were both Oak trees they had two very different and equally wonderful acorns!  Isn't this just like human beings-same species and yet intriguing and wonderful in their own way?!  

So, with some sunshine, acorns, recycled fall treasures and a new can of gold spray paint, I am in business!


Acorns Found on my Walk-Big and Beautiful




Spraying the Acorns with Metallic Spray Paint-


Home Depot, as well as all craft stores sell Metallic spray paint, this is my favorite. Rust-oleum specialty Metallic, with a bright and reflective finish.  I recommend spraying outside with a piece of cardboard or, plastic covering underneath what ever you are going to spray.  Make sure there isn't any wind and that you are careful not to breathe the fumes.  Prior to spraying shake the can several times and then spray in a steady back and forth motion.  And there you have it! 

Big Beautiful Gold Acorns



Wishing you all a good week and Happy Autumn!
