A Fun Fall Craft

One of my very favorite-est seasons is finally here! I love pretty much everything about fall. One thing I enjoy doing in the fall is taking photos of my children with those beautiful colors as a natural backdrop. There's a park not far from here that offers gorgeous scenery, especially in autumn, and we like to go there for our little photo shoots. 

Now, I have a great idea of how to display those photos: acorn frames! You can go here for instructions. These frames are simple, but so cute!  I'm going to try to find some frames at a thrift store or Dollar Tree and gather some acorns to do this craft with the kids. I'm thinking about gluing a fall print ribbon or artificial leaves on the frame to add some color...not sure about that yet. I like what they did with the burlap and leaf, but I think that using burlap for a background for a photo will look great, too. 

I know my kids will love making these! If you and your children make one of these frames, please take a  photo and share the link with us. We'd love to see how it turned out! 

Blessings to you, and Happy Fall!
