I took a lovely walk today enjoying the colors of the leaves. Good for the body and the soul. I found a fair amount of acorns that were nice & chubby from a good growing year. I want to add them to my fall/winter bowls of nuts, leaves, & fake fruit. But I don’t want any little critters crawling out of them into my home.
So here is how to dry them in your oven to make them ready for any crafts or decorating. After they are dry I might spray them with a little shellac to preserve them longer. You can use spray shellac in either a shiny finish or a matte finish if you want a more natural look.
