Remember this awesome DIY wreath that Dana over at Made created like two years ago? I say remember like I blogged about it. Which I didn’t. My little bloggie is just over a year old. Maybe you saw it somewhere else. But back to the wreath. They’re all the same wreath just spray painted different colors depending on the season. Or the mood. The green is my favorite. (of course) Isn’t it awesome? The fact that it cost her a whopping $3.50 to make makes it even more awesome. I’m totally inspired. I have no idea where in the heck you get acorns like this so I’m going with beans. Beans are cheap. I like cheap.

    They look like acorns without the tops…

    They’re awful skinny looking acorns, too. Don’t you think? She collects these from her yard. I thought maybe I could buy some online, but I can’t find any that look like this!

    Hmmm… I’m not good at judging size from a picture. They look rather normal-sized to me. But it would probably be easier to order some online to make sure they are uniform in size and not crushed or nicked.

    This is a particular kind of acorn that is long and skinny – pointed at both ends. There is someone around the corner from us with this kind. I think they would be much easier to work with because the points line up better and they are more uniform in size and shape. We have the kind you’re used to seeing in our yard (one pointed end, flat top, fuller shape) and they are harder to work with. I made a wreath with ours and I feel it was much more difficult to maintain the orderly rows. It still turned out cute, but if you can find the pointy ones, I think they’ll do better. While making the wreath I thought of a few other things that would look cool glued on a wreath: buttons, wooden beads, little spools of thread… lots of things that would really cute. Gonna give a shot for Christmas gifts!

      I finally saw the thinner variety at a friends house this year :) I tried doing a search online to find some to craft with, but didn’t have any luck. Fantastic idea to use the wooden beads! I’ll have to try those this year. Thanks for the tips!
