Candle holder with glitter acorns
Step by step tutorial
1. Brush the glue to the acorn.
2. Applying glitter: unlike the tutorial on Pinterest, where it is written that glitter should be applied by brush, I suggest “dye” the acorns into glitter powder or gently sprinkle the glitter on them.
Do not worry – even if the glue is white after drying is clear and the glitter color becomes more intense.
Also, I recommend to pick acorns with their stems – it is then easier to hold and work with them.
3. Since there left a lot of glitter powder on the plate, I decided to mix all the colors together and repeat the process on small pine cones. Because I wanted only a subtle hint of glitter, this time I was applying glitter with a brush.
Decorated Clay Pots
Two small flower pots from the beginning of this post, I was not making now, but about ten years ago, so I do not have any detailed photo documentation of their creation. However, the base consists of: a small clay pot, polystyrene to fill the interior, sisal fiber, various synthetic autumn decorations (berries, chestnuts, leaves, pumpkins …) and of course glue.
