Hello ladies. Welcome to the mansion. While looking at the pottery barn site the other day, I came across this pic.Love it. Those are not real acorns, they are "vase filler" acorns. They reminded me of some really cute acorns I saw at a fabulous gift shop in Natchitoches, LA. Someone had made large acorns out of plastic lemons and pinecones. I decided to give it a try.... Got me some dollar store lemons. You might be able to get them even cheaper at Hobby Lobby with 50% off.... I grabbed two shades of brown paint and a paintbrush. I painted about 2/3 of the lemon witht he brown paints and let them dry. Next, I gathered up some pinecones and plucked the little pieces off of them. Then, I hot glued the pieces on the remaining yellow portion of the lemon. And walaaaaa.... Big..."Sour" acorns.....love them.
It's not Pottery Barn "vase filler", but...it's not 14.00 plus tax and shipping either....ha. Grab some little lemons and make yourself some big "sour" acorns.
