My daughter and I gathered a bunch of acorns in the beginning of the fall for acorn crafts. While organizing our craft supplies, I stumbled across our last few.

With the kickoff to the holiday season just around the corner, I am feeling pretty spirited. I have to admit, I even started playing Christmas carols this week.
Carolers seemed like the perfect idea for the last of our acorns. The acorn caps make the perfect winter hats. We painted the caps with acrylic paint and let them dry. If the caps are loose, use a low temp glue gun to glue them onto the bottom of the acorn more securely. (Always use caution and supervise children when using a glue gun)
We used acrylic paints to paint faces onto our acorns as well. Our faces had closed eyes and little round singing mouths.
We used corks for our bodies. I poked a hole into the center of each cork.
We squeezed a dab of glue right into the hole and pressed the acorn head into it.
We cut small rectangles out of white card stock and folded them in half to form our carol books.
We cut tiny little mittens and glued them to the sides of our books to finish them off.
I was pretty excited at how cute these came out and placed them on our mantle for the holiday season.
