After a brief windstorm a few weeks ago we have a large limb fall in our yard. I went out there to find A LOT of acorns on the ground. These were pretty large and mostly still in one piece. Not only was I thinking about how was I going to move this large limb but I needed to get these acorns out of the yard so the new grass seed can grow.
I picked up a large box of acorns and decided I would use them for decorating around the house.
Even though acorns are prevalent in our yard yearly, I am sharing how to preserve them so you can keep them year to year and more importantly get the bugs out! Time to learn the processing of preserving acorns for fall decor to use year after year. Be sure to check out our Christmas Acorn Project too.
I saw a small bag of acorns at our craft store for $4. It contained about 20 acorns. With this simple process of preserving your acorns, you can have hundreds for about $5. This post does contain affiliate links that we earn a few cents if you purchase from them.
