So, I thought they were pretty, that's what.
I think they are pretty also, but I wondered whether you painted them or bought them. Don't say that's how they fell of the tree, cos I wont believe you! Ha!
I did. DIY means 'do it yourself'. Now I want you to make some. :)
They look so cute!How did you keep the caps from coming off?Pork Chops here too! hahaha!!Enjoy your evening...Cheers!Linda :o)
Half are real and half are fake.I had a few caps pop off but just glued them back on!Some are done with craft paints and the shimmery ones are frostednail polish! Not done perfectly...just a quick littleproject the other night.Yay for pork chops. Yum. haha.
Such artistry. They look like precious jewels.
I'm really enjoying them...something a little different!
Sue captured it well....precious jewels. However, my first thought was crunchie M&M's. You make the most simple things elegant!!! Love your "touch".
Yum...how can anyone refuse crunchy M&Ms? haha. Have you seen those pretty little candies youcan make from Hershey kisses and mini Nutter Butters? They look like acorns...so cute!
No, will have to check that out. Yesterday some of the children here at the Villa were selling candy.....chocolate covered pretzel sticks with broken pieces of M&M's. I bought several and have been crunching on them.
Here's some...I think these were made with mini vanilla wafers. I stuck mine together with peanut butter...really easy.https://www.pinterest.com/pin/224476362656604218/
Great idea and so attractive. I wonder if the oak trees will be coloured . . . haha
Maybe...the leaves would be different, wouldn't they? :)
Oh now come on!! Those are so cute.
Aren't they? I love the way they turned out...simple yet different enough not to be mundane.
Hmmm, looks like a fun craft project that my son would enjoy. Was it difficult to paint?
Oh no...very easy. I just did one coat and didn't make them perfect. It's easy to hold on to the caps, so I think he'd have fun!
What a lovely idea, I love the colors, especially the blue ones....they remind me of Robin's eggs :)Sweet.~Jo
Oh, you're right! They do look like sweet robin eggs!
Very cute....and, I love the platter!!!
Auction trash a couple of years ago...can you believe that?
What a great idea! So pretty!
and easy...that was the best part. :)
How beautiful! And I love your header, it made me smile. :)
Isn't that cute? Not my photography though..the source is in the link.
Hi Betsy - bringing the humble acorn to life ... they almost look like sugared almonds - I wonder if the pigs like them better painted up?! I was reminded about Charles II's oak tree - where he hid to escape and live another day - last night ... they've planted off-shoots of his original hiding place ... cheers Hilary
I don't know that story about Charles...very nice.
Oh Betsy these are so cute and perfect to decorate home in this period.Love
They are perfect for fall, aren't they?
Looks like jewellery!
Yes, I agree....pretty and shimmery!
Nicely doneWith acorn funBut how will the poor squirrel eatNo wonder they steal the bird seed treat lol
Look at youup with the early crew.Before the sunhad even begun.
Really pretty - and a perfect choice of dish to display them.
I got lucky and had a dish with that exact color! :)
Great pictures as always, Betsy! Love the painted acorns. I was out gathering some yesterday for new Botanical art. They're great subjects!
I like the blue ones.
