As you may know, we have embarked upon a journey to make little heirloom ornaments for our Christmas tree. We try to gather the materials from the outside world around us and work out ways to make them into sweet handmade Christmas decorations. I love watching my children delight in the knowledge that nature gives us so much. With Nature and a creative spirit, we can make enchanting ornaments.
As you may also know, there’s no shortage of acorns around here. Teddy was determined to make something that used ‘Yots of acorns!’ Kitty decided that we could make an acorn garland for our Christmas tree. I think this might just be my favorite Christmas creation yet!
We started by separating the acorns from their caps. Acorns are designed to fall out of their caps and so we decided that sticking them into their caps was the best way to keep them from falling off our garland.
Once the acorns were separated from their caps, I drilled a hole through each acorn.
