Technicolor Acorns
Total Time 1 hour Ages school-age

Using a common autumn find -- empty acorn caps -- this whimsical craft is perfect to make after a walk in the woods.

What you'll need

  • Acorn caps
  • Colored tissue paper
  • Waxed paper
  • Paintbrush
  • White glue

How to make it

  1. Step 1 - Technicolor Acorns

    For each acorn, cut two pieces of colored tissue paper, one about 5 inches square, and one about 2 inches square. Ball up the larger square into a roughly oval shape.

  2. Working over waxed paper, use a paintbrush to coat the smaller square with white glue. Wrap the smaller square around the wadded tissue, smoothing it on as you go.

  3. Attach the acorn cap with a dab of glue. Holding the acorn by the cap only, carefully paint the outside of the tissue ball with glue to seal it. Let the acorn dry on the waxed paper.
