If you have a oak tree on your property or can get to one, here is a cute man made from the acorns.
Approximate Time 15 minutes
Gather acorns and clean off dirt. Then all you have to do is glue the acorns together as in picture. You can put a face on with paint or marker if you like. If you don't have an oak tree with the big acorns you can use the small ones for the head and body.

How cute!! And so simple and inexpensive! Just as an added thought, these could even make a cute Christmas tree decoration with a bit of red and/or green ribbon (for a scarf around the neck, hanger on the acorn cap, and maybe a bit of white cotton ball glued around the bottom of the cap for fur?). Thanks for sharing! Leah
this is really cute
LORDY DID THIS BRING BACK MEMORIES. WE MADE THIS AS CHILDREN ONLY WE DIDN'T HAVE A GLUE GUN.WE POKED HOLES IN THE ACORNS AND INSERTED SMALL STICKS TO HOLD THEM TOGETHER.THIS MADE ME SMILE AND I EVEN HAD TO CALL MY SISTER TO TELL HER ABOUT IT. THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES AND SMILES
Sandy, I love this idea. I have a huge oak in my yard. Walking out there is like being in a shooting gallery,I have allways wanted to do something with the acorns besides rakeing them up. Thanks for the post, Barb
