Samhain Crafts - Acorn Jack O' Lanterns

Thursday, September 29, 2011
In my trolling around the internets I found this unique craft that I wanted to share with you today.

Items Needed

*acorns
*black permanent marker
*orange acrylic paint
*brown acrylic paint

Now that you have gathered all the supplies, start off my removing the caps from the acorns. I recommend baking the acorns at this point to kill any weevils that may be in them. Do this on the lowest heat possible, just be sure not to burn them. If this seems like to much work, or you live in an area that doesn't have acorns, you can always buy them on Amazon.

Next paint the acorns orange and the pointy tip at the bottom brown, for the stem. Then use the marker to draw on a scary face, like those on Jack O' Lanterns. You may want to finish them with a clear matte to avoid fading and allow you to use them next year as well.

Happy Crafting!
