Easy autumn craft: colorful painted acorns

See also

This time of year I see lots of acorns littering the sidewalks on my daily walks. I'll often pick up handfuls of them along the way, stuffing them into my little shoulder bag, with no idea why. In the back of my head is the vague thought that there must be something I can do with these pretty little nuts. Inevitably they get tossed onto the compost heap when I get home. Until now! Amy at Mod Podge Rocks! has a terrific idea on what to do with a heap of collected acorns: paint 'em! And then display them in a glass vase. Her easy tutorial takes you through the steps.
