Prettying it up.


Are you a seasonal decorator
Do you go all out, or just do something simple and in keeping with the season
I don't go too crazy with the decorations, but I like to do something to bring the season into our home. 

We have this huge oak tree outside in our front yard. It's the only tree we have on a property that is older than a year or two. It drops a million little acorns all over the lawn. At the base of the tree the grass doesn't grow though. Instead it's covered in pretty moss, and little mushrooms pop up here and there. The squirrels come and collect the acorns and "deshell" leaving acorn tops behind. The kids love collecting them. I'm still trying to figure out what to do with them all! They're so pretty and there are so many of them that it seems just a waste to let them sit in the lawn.  
Do you have any ideas?

  1. I would line the bottom portion of a deep hurricane glass vase or similar with some moss, toss in a ton of the acorn tops and maybe put a candle in the middle. Love your wreath idea!
