Acorn Crown

I finally figured out what to do with all of the acorns M and G have been collecting on our walks- I made an acorn crown for our dress-up chest!

Making it was pretty simple (but I did burn myself a few times and used up an ENORMOUS number of glue sticks) To make sure it turned out in the shape I wanted I drew a circle on a piece of paper and then just glue gun-ed acorns side by side using the circle on the paper as a guide. I did two layers and then added a few points to the crown.

The crown has a nice, heavy feel to it (better than a plastic tiara for sure) and it makes for very nice, woodland princesses!
