At my school, the acorn is our second mascot. Though this may sound weird, due to the old oaks we have and a perpetual fear of being hit by a fallen acorn when walking to class, the acorn has become a symbol for our school. Needless to say, I am fond of the acorn, which is why the recent craft trend of acorns brings a smile to my face. Here are just some of the acorn crafts I have seen and wanted to make for myself.
These cute candles won’t burn for long, but would make for a great decoration at any fall party you might be hosting. You can also make a ton with not much wax, so replacing them throughout the night would be easy.
As terrifying as it is, school time is fast approaching. Personally, I’ll be moving into my new apartment for the school year within the next week and as I prepare for my final year as an undergrad, I know it will be filled with late night stresses and early morning classes. One thing I know will brighten any morning time drowsiness is to have school supplies that are not only functional, but personalized. These crafts are the perfect way to add something extra to a school day that will make me happy to take out my pencils and hit the books for one more year.
This recipe book could easily be used as notebook instead. Not only will this book be a great way to create a personalized school supply, it will be lighter then the average notebook and pages won’t tear out as easily. I would happily keep my notes for classes if I could line up notebooks like this on my shelf after they were over.
