A warm, copper, metallic paint gives an ordinary dried acorn some glizty Autumn warmth. Painted acorns are great for using in a candle display, a bowl filler, or simply scattered for some easy Fall decor. When I search for acorns, the caps are a lot of the time separated from the nut. This just makes it easier to paint in two different colors after drying. A white painted top brightens the acorns up and gives them a more chic look.

Burlap is already warm and rustic. It’s a great base for making a Fall wreath. To add in some Fall color, just make a bow using colored burlap. I really like a patterned bow, like this one, for a cheery design. The form that is used for this burlap wreath is a straw form versus a wire form. I like the technique which is easier than it looks.

As far as Fall crafts go, this is definitely one of the more easy ones. It’s actually more of a task of collecting and assembling. Shop your favorite antique store for old spice tins with warm colors. Then add fresh flowers that coordinate with the tins. For a more permanent design, use artificial flowers instead. Just cut floral foam to fit the inside of the tins and poke your stems through.


Painted Burlap Fall Table Runner
