How much fun are acorn tops, guys?
If you answered, “REALLY FUN,” then this is a good project for you. It’s very simple but in need of some refining, so let me know if you build on this idea before I do!
2 acorn tops (it’s best if one is smaller than the other)
Craft paint (any color/s; I chose bronze for mine)
Small piece of yarn (I used a scrap of about 3.5 inches)
Acquire two acorn tops. A smaller one works well as the ‘head’ while a larger one can be the ‘body.’
Paint the insides of both acorn caps.
Use white glue to glue the smaller acorn top to the other
Find a small piece of yarn (dive into the scrap pile if you need to!), no longer than 3.5 inches long (it will be trimmed down later anyway).
Tie the yarn around the ‘neck’ of your acorn figure to create a scarf.
Trim excess yarn.
Voila! Your little snowman-like creature is complete!
I’m thinking about making a couple to keep this one company, and drilling two holes in the top of their ‘heads’ so I can hang them as ornaments! I’ll probably add little arms as well. I thought about adding a face but I kind of like that they’re faceless…
