Acorn Cap Flowers & Burlap Wreath

Last year I gathered up a bag full of acorn caps.
 I had every intention of making something marvelous with them, but they have just stayed in the bag.
Finally, I had a use for them.
Someone had given me a grapevine wreath. I wrapped it with burlap ribbon and decided to add the acorn caps. They looked funny just place randomly around the wreath so I made them into flowers. It still needed a little something so I made some little circles with twine and tucked them around the flowers.




Now the wheels are turning with ideas of what else to make with my vast supply of acorn caps! Hmmm... maybe some Christmas trees, or snowmen, or.....
