Glittered Acorn Ornament Box

Introduction

This glittered acorn box is a charming and clever way to package holiday gifts -- and it makes a lovely tree ornament.

Materials

  • Acorn ornament boxes
  • Painters' tape
  • Martha Stewart craft glue
  • Martha Stewart glitter
  • Angel hair, tinsel, or shredded newspaper
  • Felted Acorn Pendant and Pin

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Using painters' tape, tape around the inside edges of the acorn ornament boxes to avoid excess glue and glitter.

  2. Step 2

    Apply craft glue to acorn cap. Glitter the acorn box, beginning with the cap of the acorn first. Then glitter body of acorn. Let dry.

  3. Step 3

    Place angel hair into box; you can also use tinsel or shredded newspaper. Place Felted Acorn Pendant and Pin in box.

    I too was disappointed when I could not find these at my local Michaels. I was too late to read one could get them on QVC. I would strongly encourage the MSLO people to consider how frustrating it is for MS to not sell these items she demos on the show, rely on Michaels and then clearly not have enough stock. Does not reflect well on MSLO, and does not make me want to watch her Holiday shows when I cannot get the materials. Great ideas are not so great if you cannot duplicate them.

    I have made regular visits to Michael's since Nov. of 2007 to look for the acorn boxes. I was there the beginning of November and the middle of November. I drive 30 minutes to get to a store in Fairlawn or one in Parma, Ohio. They sold out as soon as they got them. This is the worst marketing for a chain store I have ever seen. I have complained and complained and they still won't order an appropriate amount of stock.

    I called the three Michael's stores near me...each store is 45-60 minutes away...Not one store had any. Frustrating INDEED.

    I can't find these acorn boxes at Michael's. I managed to snag three individual ones, but every store I've gone to only has the pine cones and pears. No three packs at all. It's very frustrating. I was hoping to make these as gifts for a group I belong to.

    I have been waiting for the acorns to come to Michael's - they are finally there but not in the 3 to a pack. They sell them individually in the Martha section. Hurry before they are gone!!

    QVC has a kit to do these.

    I have been looking for the acorn boxes for a year. Last fall I did purchase the pine cone boxes but I cannot find them this year either. This is frustrating.

  • Mizbug 6 Oct, 2008

    Stated in the Resources section - Acorn ornament boxes will be available Nov 2nd.

  • judesthree 19 Sep, 2008

    Seriously, how are we suppose to be like Martha if we can't find the boxes. I live in Oregon--checked Michaels and web site--Nothing. Also, it would be nice if they told us the colors of glitter or the combo pack to get. Please help before we are on to snowmen!!

  • jazziegirl 17 Sep, 2008

    I loved the Acorn Ornaments you did on the show but can't find them anywhere. I tried Michaels, AC Moore, Joannes, and the new Hobby Lobby in our town and no one has any. I even looked on your craft site and can't find them. Where can I get them? I have a neat skinny Alpine Tree that I want to do for the Fall season. Please help!! Thanks so much.

    9-08 Saw the repeat of acorn and pinecone glittered boxes. Unable to find boxes as indicated at Michaels. Does anyone know where to find the acorn boxes? They are not on the marthastewart site as indicated.
    Thanks.

    Please pardon my typo in the first comment. I meant to say that the Martha Stewart glitter is really special. I left out the word glitter. It really sparkles, and the range of colors is lovely.

  • Learner10 1 Dec, 2007

    The Martha Stewart is really special, not like what I usually buy. Wonderful colors,too!
