Fall is in the Air

Fall I think is my favorite time of year. Cool nights, warm afternoons and clear blue skies.

It is the end of October and finally feeling like Fall where I live. So my thoughts turn to all things Autumnal. Pumpkins, hay rides, hot chocolate, chrysanthemums, geese flying south, leaves of red yellow and orange, pine cones and acorns!

I first noticed all the acorns while walking out to my mail box last week.  Cute little acorn caps were littering my driveway. I picked some up, leaving the acorns in the yard for the squirrels, and took them inside. So you may ask, "what will you do with acorn caps"? Well I'll show you.

Aren't they just the cutest?

I can just picture them in a small glass bowl with moss and stones.  Or how about scattered among some evergreen leaves down the middle of your Thanksgiving table? Or attached to a napkin ring with small twigs or other natural elements? Oh, the possibilities!!!

I have dozens and dozens of acorn caps at my disposal. I'll have to gather them up soon before the outdoor elements destroy them, just in case I decide to make some more of these little gems.

So what would you do with these unnaturally colored nuts? I would love to hear your ideas. So why not leave me a comment?


  1. These are so cute! They would look lovely as a centerpiece.

  2. I think they would make a sweet garland!
