Acorn Mason Jar Lanterns

My kids are collectors and gatherers. We have boxes of rocks, sticks, dried up leaves, and found treaseures like broken boat rudders and stripped watches. Do any of you have a garage overflowing with "junk?" I will take any chance I get to actually use the treasures we find in a cute way...and other times I slowly throw these treasures away so no one notices:)

I was very excited to find a way to use these acorns we found on a hike last month in Genessee, Colorado. I always have boxes of different sized mason jars laying around and when I saw this inspiration image from Pottery Barn we got right to work!

I had a pack of small glass candle votives that I wanted to use. This way, as the candles melt, my acorns won't be ruined and we can keep resuing this easy decoration all season. I put one candle in each jar and then filled with my small acorns.

I love how clean and simple it looks. I am always a fan of bringing nature into our home to decorate for each season. Maybe because I would usually be outside anyway and it helps me feel good when we have to spdend lots of time indoors!
