Christmas Craft Idea No. 1: Acorn Ornament

Christmas Craft Idea No. 1: Acorn Ornament

For some of us, the day after Thanksgiving, coined Black Friday, kicks-off the busy holiday shopping season. Savvy shoppers rush to crowded stores—sometimes as early as midnight or the evening before--to obtain the greatest deal on the latest trinket.

Imagine how you would feel not having to face large, aggressive crowds to complete your holiday shopping list. What if you approached your trees for holiday gift inspiration instead?

That’s right; you can stay home with your family and friends Thanksgiving weekend without missing the opportunity to immerse yourself in the spirit of giving. So, grab some craft supplies—and fallen acorns, pine cones and branches from your trees—and create meaningful, handmade gifts for your loved ones.
