Paint-by-Nature Wreath

A little paint brings a front-door wreath of acorns, pinecones, twigs, and walnuts to life. First paint about 30-40 nuts various autumn colors. Meanwhile, hot-glue leaves, pinecones, and twigs to the wreath and spray-paint the entire thing white. When dry, hot glue the colorful nuts to wreath as shown. Then, tie a ribbon on the wreath to hang.
