Pottery Barn Inspired Painted Acorns

Have you entered my current giveaway yet? You can enter it every day!!

So a week or so ago, Hazel and I were walking around the new mall near our house and went into Pottery Barn to look around. My little shopper girl did not want to leave since there were so many beautiful things to look at, however one thing we saw were gold painted acorns. We decided we could make some and Hazel wanted to make them rainbow colors. While we were out making apple and nature prints, we rolled some of our acorns around int he fall colored paints.
After the paint dried I glued the tops back on and we displayed them. First we did a display with the needle felted acorns I made in the past.
Then we pulled out some of our autumn decorations and found leaf bowls to put them in.
Today, I also made some gold colored ones, however what I thought was gold paint ended up being more of a glitter paint. Oh, well. I like them still.
To get the ones like Pottery Barn I am guessing you would need gold spray paint. We don't have any, so these will have to do for now. Happy Autumn!!
