Kids and adults alike enjoy strawberry crafts. If you’re like me, you have some acorns laying around that you collected last fall. Strawberries are pretty and bursting with color, they make for a fun afternoon of crafting. So why not make some to display in a jar or make some into magnets like I did?
Simply paint the acorn tops green and the acorns themselves with varying shades of red and pink. Then use a toothpick dipped in black paint to add the outer seeds. Glue on a magnet when they are dry!
