I love having a few handmade ornaments hanging on the tree. These DIY acorn ornaments are a really fun activity to do with kids and a beautiful result. You can paint them any color you’d like to match your holiday decorating aesthetic. I went with rainbow because you really can’t go wrong with rainbow in my book.
It would be really cute to attach one to a special gift too, don’t you think? Keep reading to see how to make them!

Hot glueStep 1: Roll your polymer clay into balls. A great activity to do with kids! Just be sure to keep them a size that will fit in the acorn cap. Bake according to your polymer instructions until hard.
Step 4: Glue your balls into your acorn caps and then thread a ornament hook through the top
