November Acorns

It’s November and fall has even settled on us here in Southeast Texas.  There is a coldness to the morning air that wasn’t here a month ago.  With the Thanksgiving holiday only a couple weeks away it’s time to focus on decorating ideas that are fitting for the month and season.  We’ve always been fascinated by the simple and natural beauty of acorns so this post will focus on using acorns to adorn and beautify your home.

Here’s an acorn wreath by BHG.:

Finally, how about some chocolate and peanut butter acorns as a treat?

Chocolate and Peanut Butter; need I say more? These are a perfect project for tiny fingers!

  1. Melt 1/2 bag of Mini-Chips {5 second interval in the microwave, stirring really good each time}
  2. Dip the flat end of the Hershey’s Kiss into melted chocolate and top with a bite-size NutterButter.
  3. Dip the flat end of a Mini-Chip into the melted chocolate and stick it to the NutterButter.
