10 Days of a Kid-Made Christmas: Acorn & Pine Needle Ornament Inspired by The Little Acorn Grows Up

Welcome to the 2nd annual 10 Days of a Kid-Made Christmas series hosted by Mama Miss featuring over 70+ bloggers with ornaments inspired by children's books.

This year little one and I were inspired with the children's book Little Acorn Grows Up. It's the story of an acorn and how he tells each animal how he will take care of them when he grows up. 

For our Little Acorn Grows Up inspired ornament we used the following: 

Assemble the pine needle on the foam craft, and hot glue then the acorns.  Then put dabs of white glue on each acorn, and sprinkle glitter over it. Once dry, shake the excess glitter off, and hot glue a ribbon to hang. Voila! Simple as that! 

Little one had so much fun making this super-easy kid ornament! He got to go on a nature hung! Looking for acorns, and pine needles.  Initially we thought of making a small wreath, but the way he assembled the pine needles, it ended up looking like a tree!
