DIY: Fall Acorn Mason Jars

Fall Acorn Candle Mason Jars

One of my favorite fall trinkets is the acorn. I love their brown, woodish quality and think they are a great addition to pumpkins, squash and colorful leaves. Unfortunately, since there aren’t any trees near my house that produce acorns (or colorful leaves), I have to get most of my fall fixings from the local craft store. 

Today, I added a little bit of fall to my house by filling mason jars with acorns and votive candles. This idea was easy and very inexpensive. Double Bonus.

What are some of your quick and cheap autumn decor tricks?

P.S. Years ago, I was camping with some friends. Around 5:00 am I was woken up by squirrels. They were pelting me with acorns. Who knew squirrels used them in self defense?

    Ginger - I like that you’re getting autumn-y when it’s still sweltering summer. Maybe if I did that I wouldn’t be so miserable.

    It’s definitely helped take my mind off the 100 degree heat. I crank my AC down to 73 and pretend it’s fall outside. ;)
