Look at our lovely leaves falling! I took this quick video from our window during a chilly afternoon to capture the beauty of Fall, especially in my neighborhood with all the big trees.
We painted the tops with a paint brush using some metallic paint. You could also use spray paint but we didn't have gold which is the color I wanted to use originally.
At Michaels I picked up 100% wool roving and used my 40% off coupon. It was just a few dollars.
I also picked up some twine in the floral section of Michaels for a few dollars.
In order to make little balls I tore off little bits of the wool and rolled it into a ball and then dipped it in soapy water and then squeezed out the excess. I let the balls dry over night.
I attached the balls inside the acorn caps using my hot glue gun and I attached the twine the same way. Once they were dry I hung them through a longer piece of twine to display.
They made a cute addition to the mantel I think!
When Thanksgiving is over I think they could make cute toppers for gifts or even look great as Christmas tree ornaments.
Here's some little close-ups.
Happy Fall Ya'll!
