I was at the Dunkin Donuts closest to my work one fine morning last month, and noticed their big acorn wall decor. It looked like it was made of wine colored corkboard. I decided it would be easier to make mine out of inexpensive black poster board and pattern paper, both of which I already have. So I gathered the following materials:
Black poster paper, pattern paper, pen, scissor, Mod Podge, and a sponge brush
1) Sketch some acorns of different sizes onto the black poster board
2) Cut those out and trace them onto the back side of the pattern paper. For the main color of each acorn, trace the entire acorn onto back side of the main color pattern paper. For the top part of the acorn, trace only the top part of the acorn onto the back side of the top color pattern paper.
4) For each acorn, brush the mod podge onto the entire acorn and carefully place the main color paper onto the acorn. Make sure the paper is aligned correctly. You only get one or two tries to get it right before the paper becomes to wet with glue and tears if you try to peel it off.
5) Rub your hands flat all over the acorn to ensure the main color paper adheres to the mod podge.
9) Display your acorns. I taped mine to my front door to replace the Halloween bats.
