Craft Lightning Christmas Edition 2016

Time for another Craft Lightning.... crafts in 15 minutes or less for Christmas.

I always love to see what everyone comes up with.

It is a glorious fall where I live and I have gathered some sweet acorns for this quick craft.

Clean them and be sure you have a cap and an acorn for each ornament.

Drill a hole in the cap of each acorn.

Cut a piece of wire for each one about two inches long.

Twist the wire to make a loop as shown.

Push the ends of the wire together and slide them down through the acorn cap.

Once through, open the wires on the inside.

Use a hot glue gun to glue the acorns into the cap.

Gather your glitter and glittering glue.

I really do the stuff Martha Stewart makes for this.

Brush on the glue, and sprinkle with glitter.

Tap off excess.

Allow to fully dry and add a little twine hanger.

These make great gift toppers or ornaments.

A quick tip:  You can either buy processed acorns or gather your own.

If you gather your own, it is best to bake them in a craft dedicated toaster oven at 150 degrees for about 30 minutes to kill any critters dwelling within.
