Everyone likes a little bit of fall chill in the air and crunchy leaves on the ground, so who wouldn’t want to carry it around with you all year round.
This beautiful necklace is perfect to wear daily or as a unique thanksgiving piece! It is very simple, and very cute!

1. The first step is to pick (or buyAcorns or Pine cones!) yourself some small acorns or pinecones – Technically they don’t have to be small, whatever size is your own personal liking!

2. Secondly you will need to use a hot glue gun to affix a jump ring to the top of each of the pinecones or acorns you want to use. These can be found in local craft shops, or online for fairly cheap.

3. After the glue has dried, now you can spray with gold paint, a recommended one is Krylon’s 18-karat gold paint, super shiny, and a rich gold colour, although any spray paint you find that works will do the job!

4. Let the paint dry (around 20 minutes, however, may take longer, depending on the brand of paint you us!) and then Spray with clear finish to add extra shine and make it look more like jewellery!

5. Once your charm is dry, all that is left to do is to string them onto gold chains to match and wear it out!

Of course, if you aren’t a fan of gold jewellery then you can always do the same with a shiny silver, or if you are really feeling adventurous try a cute colour charm with a chain of your choosing!

Personally I am excited to give this a shot myself, if you do try this, make sure you let us know below with how it went!
