DIY Glitter Acorns & Fall Wreath Inspiration



Looking for fall wreath inspiration?  Wayfair rounded up a group of bloggers, including me, to decorate their Grapevine wreath.

Being the glitter, sparkle lover I am- I added some glittered acorns to the wreath.  They are so easy to make and these acorns will make two more appearances on ABL, I just love them!

A sneak peak is below! To see the final wreath and get inspired from other bloggers- check out Wayfair's slideshow.  Thank you Wayfair for having me!!

Keep scrolling for the complete DIY to glitter your own acorns!


DIY Glitter Acorns 

Materials:
Acorns (I live in AZ so I purchased plastic ones, by all means, forage in your area for the real ones!!)
Craft Paint
2 Paint brushes
Mod Podge
Glitter

Instructions:
Paint the bottom half of the acorn.  I needed 2-3 coats, but the natural ones you may need less.


Once the paint is dry, use the clean paint brush to mod podge the top.


Glitter the top, do the glitter shake, removing excess and let dry!


This is in no way sponsored by Martha Stewart- But I highly recommend their glitter when you need fine glitter- it is by far my favorite and the best around.  And I sorta consider myself a glitter expert ;)
I can link to my 20 or so glitter DIYs, but I do not want to bug you!

Happy Fall everyone- and remember- glitter is NOT just for Christmas!

A Bubbly Life is on FacebookTwitter Pinterest & Instagram- I would love for you to join me there!


Disclaimer: I was provided a wreath by Wayfair to decorate for their slideshow- all opinions are my own and I was not required to do a blog post- it was my choice to share the glitter acorns- it was glitter-  I had to share!
