Acorn Branches

Recently at a craft store, I came across an ugly item. It was a hideously fake-looking branch with poorly made plastic acorns stuck to it. You'd have to see it to believe me, but it was just not right. It was also an outrageous price! I picked it up, gasped at the price, and thought to myself, "I could make something much cuter for much (MUCH!) less money!" So, I went home and did. Now I'm passing the idea on to you! You don't have to settle for expensive, poorly manufactured acorn branches anymore. You're welcome!
Remember those acorns I collected and de-bugged and used for two different fall projects so far? Well, I still have lots left over! Hooray! I'm so glad I gathered so many because I am having lots of fun using them to decorate this season! Please refer to my Twig & Acorn Wreath post to see how to de-bug your acorns for using with craft projects. I also used a few Brown Paper Bag Leaves, like the ones I posted about last week.
I started with some branches from my yard. You might also find suitable branches at a florist shop or craft store if necessary. Using a hot glue gun, attach a few acorns onto your branches in random, natural looking places until you reach the desired amount. It looks pretty cute like this and you could definitely use them this way. They would be great mixed into a fall bouquet or just in a vase by themselves. The ugly branches at the store were just bare with acorns, but these natural looking ones look 200% better than those ones!
Personally, I think the leaves add a nice touch though and I'm really happy I went with them. If you want to add leaves on yours too, then take a few minutes to create some paper bag leaves (read about how to make them HERE). Glue a few leaves to your branches. Once the glue is dry, you're done and ready to decorate with them!

  1. Stopping by from Farmgirl Friday....love your idea and the way you have displayed it!

  2. I really like this and your wreath. Thanks for the tip because a long time ago I did collect acorns and when I went back to get them out, there were worms in the drawer!!

    1. Kathy, your comment made me laugh because one year I made the same mistake... I displayed a bunch of acorns in a glass jar. It turned into a jar of worms. Not pretty! Anyway, thank you for stopping by; I'm glad you enjoyed my acorn projects! Have a wonderful week!

  3. This looks wonderful - I thought it was artwork at first in the thumbnail! I am delighted that you shared with Home and Garden Thursday,
