After I made my fall garland I had some acorns left over and I had some empty space above my fire place so I made a cute little decorative mobile. It's super easy to make.
Thin gold wire
1. The first thing I did is wrap the gold wire around the branch. This is to add a little bit of color and at the same time, it allows to hang the mobile. See how I made one of the hoops a bit bigger?
2. After preparing the branch, I tied all the acorns together. Don't forget to glue the tops so the acorn doesn't fall off it's top!
3. Lastly, I tied the acorn string to the branch and added a few of the extra attached one (from the fall garland) to each side.
Isn't it just cute? You could even paint them if you want, to add a punch of color, or maybe even add some beads between the acorns. I might end up making different variations of this over the next few years; something fun to do with my kids in the fall. :)
