Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love it because it’s low stress and focused on family and food. The dilemma I find is that because it’s sandwiched between Halloween and Christmas, I often don’t find the time do many crafts or projects for Thanksgiving. This year I’ve come up with these super easy candy acorns.
They’re so easy that I can make them Thanksgiving morning to decorate the table and give to my guests – Thanksgiving morning!
These are easy enough to make with the kiddos and only take a few minutes each to make. It's a great scrap buster project, too.
Ferrero Rocher candy
Scraps of brown card stock paper
Scraps of raffia
Circle punch or scissors
Double stick tape
Cut the paper cup so that only the part glued to the foil wrapper remains.
Punch or cut a circle from the brown card stock paper. Punch a small hole in the center and thread a short piece of raffia through the hole.
Stick the acorn cap to the candy base with double stick tape. In just minutes, you have made an adorable little candy acorn.
Who do you have that would appreciate a gift of one (or two, or three) of these easy candy acorns?
