Five Must-Try Acorn Crafts for the Autumn

acorn pumpkins from Family FunPerhaps, however, you’re really into kitschy holiday crafts–the reason I’ll be so sick of jack-o-lanterns and turkeys in a month is that I’ll be up to my ears in them!

Fortunately, with the right mindset, at this time of year anything can be turned into a jack-o-lantern. Painted with high-quality paint and sealed with a clear gloss, these acorn jack-o-lanterns, tutorial courtesy of Family Fun, are cute enough to hand out to trick-or treaters.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
