Are all you MacGyvers as excited as I am about fall decorating? I’ve already decked out my porch with hay bales, pumpkins and mums. Now I’m ready to finish my indoor decorating. Since last week’s post, I definitely have all my pumpkin crafts down. So, what’s next? Acorns! They’re free, easy to collect and oh-so cute in their little acorn caps. Now start your gathering, and let’s get to crafting!

framed acorns

Think frames are only for pictures? Think again! This 3D acorn display looks amazing and only costs a couple of bucks to make – that’s my kind of art project! Visit Delia at Delia Creates for the full tutorial.

This gorgeous display from BHG takes us back to nature with a fresh autumn feel. It’s true that sometimes the simplest decor has the biggest impact. Add citrus to your vase to hold the branches in place and add a bright punch of color to the look.

When the weather gets cool, there’s nothing like a few candles to make a room feel cozy. These floating acorn cap candles from The Gunny Sack would be just the thing to add a bit of ambiance to your autumn decor.

Drape this adorable acorn garland over your mantel or porch railing for an instant taste of fall. Bonus: it would look great in the winter, too! Visit Donni at The Magic Onions for the full tutorial.

  4. Greetings! I knokw this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using forr this
    site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems
    with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.

    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of
    a good platform.

  6. I think that what you wrote was actually very reasonable.

    However, what about this? what if you added a little
    content? I am nnot suggesting your information isn’t solid.,
    but suppose you added a post title to maybe get a
    person’s attention? I mean 5 Nutty Acorn Crafts | HGTV Design Blog – Design
    Happens is kinda boring. You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news titles
    to get people to click. You might add a related video
    or a picture or two to get readers interested about everything’ve got
    to say. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.
