After a long drive (sadly enough it wasn't within reasonable biking distance) to Walden Pond and back, I created a hemp strung bracelet using acorns along with a piece of bark accented with blue jay feathers and the carving of "BE". BEing at Walden was a phenomenal experience; to stand in the same woods where Thoreau once lived, laughed, saw, ate, and of course, wrote. I hope you enjoy the crafts.
Approximate Time 30 minutes
And there you have a glorious acorn bracelet.
And there you have a delightful wall hang.

The only problem is it is illegal to use blue jay feathers and most other feathers.
I absolutely love this idea. I can't wait to find some acorns and try it. Thanks!

What a nice craft! I love Thoreau's ideas on simplicity. Wish I could get to Walden Pond.
