Feature Friday - acorns

I have a wire basket on my kitchen table that I love.  It's filled with different balls that are different colors with different textures.  I needed to add a few more and I recalled that Dana of Made had made this wreath out of acorns a while back.  She sprayed it different colors for different holidays.

I decided to do the same thing, but to a ball instead.  We headed to the backyard.  This was a great project to involve Rex.  He had a lot of fun hunting for the acorns with me.  After three separate hunts we finally had enough.  We glued them to a ball that has been lying around our yard forever.

I liked it brown, but I wanted to add a little excitement.

So, I sprayed painted it turquiose....

....and I like it. 

Kind of fun...and now I want to make more.  But, I'm out of acorns and I'm trying to decide what else I could coat a ball in.

Dana's tutorial is HERE, so start collecting your acorns.

See you tomorrow!
