Why…pom poms, of course! So I headed to Hobby Lobby and scored a little package of them in the perfect fall colors on sale for under $2.00! Woo hoo! I threw in a few purple ones from my stash as well and I was almost set. All I needed was a friend with an oak tree…check! Now I was ready to get started! It’s so easy I hardly dare to call it a tutorial, but…
Here’s what you will need:
- Real acorn tops (I used several sizes)
- Pom poms in the colors of your choice in sizes to fit your tops ( I chose the colors of my favorite pansies!)
- Elmer’s Glue-All
And here’s what you will do:
- Match the pom poms to tops that fit.
- Add a generous amount of glue to the inside of the top.
- Press the pom pom into place and hold for a few seconds.
- Place on a paper plate and allow to dry.
And…taaa daaa!…here they are! Aren’t they gorgeous? And could it get any easier? The kiddos would love this project…helping to collect the tops and then gluing on the pom poms. You can’t get much more kid-friendly than Elmer’s! No hot glue gun needed here!
I’m so pleased with the way they turned out and, best of all, they were so easy and inexpensive to make! Won’t they make a fun little pop of color for my Thanksgiving breakfast table?
