Another awesome art project to do with kids over break: On your next nature walk, have your little one help gather acorns for mommy's next project! With this simple How to Paint Acorns craft, you can create some stunning fall decor! From J Hunter.
Acorn Picture Frame - Create a texture-rich frame to display a fall leaf or photo. Affix acorn caps to an inexpensive frame using hot glue. To complete the artwork, glue an oak leaf to a piece of stretched burlap
All natural (mostly) wood stains! A handful of pennies in vinegar will produce a beautiful pale Caribbean blue stain. A wad of steel wool will give you a rich reddish hue. A combination of tea and a metal object in vinegar will produce a black stain.
