DIY Fall Decor: Gold acorns. Clean and oven dry for several hours to ensure they are pest free. Acorns naturally fall out of the caps when ripe, so after they are oven dried and painted, use a hot glue gun to attach all the acorns to the caps. Finish them by adding a layer of clear shellac giving them a shiny look.
A simple display of mini pumpkin gourds can rise to the occasion as stylish centerpiece just by adding a little height. Perch pumpkins atop overturned bowls, cake plates or candlesticks are perfect for creating an interesting display. Try painting the pumpkins in metallic silver for a sophisticated, glitzy effect
