DIY Acorn-Cap Pencil Toppers

Aug 19, 2014
While on a woodland walk recently, we noticed the acorns are starting to drop from the trees. Who could resist?! Perfect for nature crafting.
With the first day of school shortly upon us, we thought we would put our acorn caps to use and craft up some sweet toadstool pencil toppers.
To create these toadstool pencil toppers you will need:
- acorn caps
- red and white paint
- glue gun and glue
Gather your acorn caps and paint them red.
When they are dry, paint on white dots.
Cut a small strip of paper for your toadstool base and glue it around the top of the pencil.
Glue your acorn cap to the top of the pencil.
Now you're ready to bring a little bit of the forest to the first day of school!
Enjoy these last delicious days of summer and happy school days to you all.
