Well, there's something about being called out by name in front of hundreds that motivates a person to accept a challenge! I was most inspired by Tonya's use of Glossy Accents to make a 'dewdrop' on a flower. I was thinking about that as I was walking to pick Trevor up from kindergarten, my feet crunching the zillions of acorns on the sidewalk. I gathered a large handful of acorns and decided to experiment with Glossy Accents on them.
Of course, the second Trevor saw me he noticed that I had a huge handful of acorns. He was instantly curious about what project I had planned for us to do together. told him we'd be making napkin rings. He said, "Great! What are napkin rings?" I love his enthusiasm. Affiliate links below.
Fall Acorn Napkin Rings
Cut rings from a cardboard tube, then paint them with fall colors. While they are drying, stamp oak leaves using Staz-On, then do a color wash over that. Cut out the leaves, then coat them and the acorns with Glossy Accents.
When everything is dry, tie twine or ribbon around the rings and use Glossy Accents to attach the leaves. I used a glue gun to attach the acorns.
Here's a closer look at one of my napkin rings:
Here are the ones Trevor made:
