Our yard is filled with acorns. This is the case every year at this time. We only just need to walk a couple of steps in any direction to stumble across a pile of them. We have gathered up a bunch and are excited about all of the possibilities. My daughter already has some great Christmas ideas for them. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. These Day of the Dead painted acorns are just perfect for Halloween.

They are actually very helpful. And I am just obsessed with their webs. This art project is dedicated to my 8-legged friends and it’s is a fun one.
Cork Printed Pumpkin Patch Art
My daughter found a box of assorted corks the other day. She was so excited when she found them and immediately wanted to know what she could do with them. Her excitement rubbed off on me and I had to find a project for the corks too. These champagne corks were perfect for our pumpkin patch.
