Acorn Fairy Hat Wreath

Acorn Fairy Hat Wreath - Autumn Crafts for Kids

Autumn has landed and I am so happy to see all the beautiful Autumn colours! The walks with the children are lots of fun as they keep discovering lots of lovely nature finds all over the woodland floor! We collected lots of the acorn fairy hats to craft with. Last year we made an amazing autumn tree canvas using the acorn tops this year we made this lovely Autumn Fairy Hat Wreath.

For this craft we needed the fairy hats that we collected on a nature walk. Some scissors, PVA glue works great and is much safer for the children to use. Paper plates, acrylic paints and paint brushes. 

I used Brian Clegg PVA glue. I was kindly sent some to try out a couple of years ago and rated it so much I've used it ever since.

We started off by painting inside all of the acorns tops. We used Autumnal colours but you would use any you wish. I quite like the ideas of making a brightly coloured rainbow one or a neon one even to go with our Neon Drip Paint Pumpkin that we made! That still remains one of my favourite activities that we've done! Was fun to do and turned out amazing!!

Paint all your acorn tops and leave them to dry. I find that acrylic paint dries super quick. 

Carefully cut out the centre of your plate. This may be something you want to prep before the activity or older children may enjoy giving this a go themselves.

Smother your wreath base in PVA glue. I know some of you may be tempted to whip the glue gun out for this. If you wanted it to be an activity for the children PVA glue is much safer and something that can be left on the side for a couple of days to dry fully. 

Submerge your coloured acorn tops in glue as above and build up the covering until all the paper plate base has been completely covered over. 

Lets see this activity in action:

I just love how this craft turned out! I am busy thinking about what else we can do with these lovely little fairy hats. Have you ever used them to make something?
