Make a beautiful gold acorn vase filler in 3 simple steps, no crafting skills required. This is one of the easiest acorn crafts and is the perfect way to bring fall inside your home!
On a recent walk in the park with my kids, I noticed that they started carefully picking up and collecting acorns that they had found lying on the ground.
Acorns are like little magnets that draw you in and make you want to pick them up. Each one of them has its’ own unique shape, size, and color.
Before long, I found myself down on the ground with my kids collecting acorns. I just couldn’t help myself!
We brought them home, and I knew that these acorns would make a great decoration with a little help. They needed just a little something…
With a stroke of genius, I got out my Martha Stewart Metallic Paints, got to work, and ended up with these little jewels.
Aren’t they beautiful?
The metallic bronze and gold paint gave them just the sparkle they needed, while still maintaining the beautiful, rich browns of the acorn itself.

How to Preserve Acorns for Crafts
The first and most important step for all DIY acorn crafts is to bake your acorns.
Painting the Acorns
After the acorns have baked and cooled, paint the dark acorn bottoms with bronze paint, and the little acorn tops with gold paint.
