First we had a wonderful summer and now we are being rewarded with a golden October! I’m already in the starting blocks for rainy afternoons, but so far the many candles have only been standing around as decoration and the firewood is still waiting to be used, because we are outside as often as possible when the weather is nice. That’s why I have endless autumn decorations from nature here, chestnuts, twigs, beechnuts and acorns, from which I made a small wreath for the door.
- Spray paint in your autumn colors (mine are from Edding)
- paint brush
- Gold leaf
- Application milk (e.g. from RICO)
- Hand drill or craft needle
- Base for painting
How to do it:
Divide the acorns and paint them in different colors. It is best to apply the paint thinly in spurts and let it dry, then turn the acorns over and paint them again.
Then you decorate individual acorns with gold leaf. To do this, you brush some areas of application milk on the acorns, let them dry briefly and apply gold leaf with the brush.
Finally, you drill holes in the acorns and thread them on wire, which you then shape into a ring and close.
That was a little fall decoration project at the beginning of the week. This week I would like to turn the gallery upside down, tidy it up and decorate it for autumn so that we can snuggle up there comfortably soon. In my house, one room is always totally neglected and looks pretty chaotic because it is often overwhelming for me to keep the entire house sparkling clean. The gallery is always there because you can’t see the mess from below (luckily we decided against a glass railing when building the house 😛). Do you also have a room with you that always falls short in terms of tidying up?
A great start to the new week for you!
