Acorn Christmas Tree!

In our den, next to our Dear Santa frame is this fun Acorn Christmas Tree!


I cam across the BIGGEST acorns ever while tailgating at a football game this fall...
and yes, I got a grocery bag and started picking the up...
TONS of them.
(Yes, people were looking at me like I was NUTS - pun intended!)

I bought a cone from Hobby Lobby and began to hot glue the acorns on starting at the base of the cone, working my way up.



See?!





Once the entire cone was covered, I had this sitting on my counter.
Cute, but definitely needed color!
Soo...


I took it outside, attacked it with a can of spray paint and ended up with this:


LOVE IT!


The best part... it cost me less than $5!

Merry Christmas!
