decorating with wire acorns





while sitting at home and looking at the trees outside my window (with a cup of tea to keep me warm that gets refilled every few minutes) i finished this set of wire acorns today. i thought they would make a wonderful fall inspired decoration. they have a little loop at the top so they can easily be hung. noticing that many people have nice flower arrangements or wreaths at their doors which they change up for every season (i'm still looking for the perfect one for my door, one that can stay all year round), i imagine the little wire acorns would look cute in an autumn arrangement like that.

some of my wire art i use to decorate presents with. i usually pick a simple packaging paper, add a colorful bow, and then attach a wire heart, flower, acorn, etc. to the gift wrapping. this gives the present an artsy, handmade touch that makes people get excited before they even see what's in the package.

this set of wire acorn ornaments is for sale in our artsy ants shop. the acorn trio will be part of our new shop section "fall specials", more items for this sections will follow within the next few days.

have a cozy day everybody! and enjoy it like me with a hot cup of tea, coffee, or cocoa!

How creative you are. I think this would be a lovely addition to any autumn wreath. Have you ever thought about making a wind chime or a mobile out of them? That would probably be beautiful as well :)
