Make your own acorn wreath for fall!
I made my own DIY fall wreath this year using natural-looking materials to create it. I decided on an acorn wreath since we have an oak tree! I collected them over several days only picking up ones that weren't rotten. I gathered at least 100! I set out to Hobby Lobby to get a 15' styrofoam wreath form, spanish moss and glue sticks for my hot glue gun. Start by washing the acorns in a strainer with just water and then allow them to dry for at least an hour. Heat your oven to 175-200 degrees for 1.5-2 hours and let them bake. You can crack your oven door so that the acorns don't burn and throw away any that do.
Items you'll need
Styrofoam wreath form (any size you like)
Hot glue gun and 10-15 glue sticks
Doing small sections at a time, put hot glue on the form attaching the spanish moss by completely covering the section so that you don't see the for.
Completely cover the front of the wreath, inside and out with spanish moss. Cut off small clumps of it because it does stick together.
Attach your acorns in various patterns all over the wreath. I used full acorns, just the caps and some without the caps. This gave it a more cohesive look. I went through so many hot glue sticks for just the moss, probably at least 7! Plan to buy a lot of glue sticks because I ran out and didn't attach all of my acorns so I'll add more acorns later.
Trim off the extra moss that looks straggly that hangs over the sides. It's already dry after this step so you can hang it right away! Have a great Tuesday!
