Fall Decor turned Science Project {Thoughtful Thursday}

So some of you may have the wrong impression and think I'm a great cook or DIYer. Just wanted to put this out there along with my facade I publish here every week on Thoughtful Thursdays:

"Acorns in a Vase"

Simple. Cute. Free!

We gathered acorns after a fun family picnic outing and brought them home for a cute fall DIY decorations.

The girls were very proud that they'd help 'make' this fun display on our dinning room table...until a week later! No, they were still very proud of it...me, not to much. I was discussed as my girl examined their creatures they had accidentally carted home in their acorn.

THIS great post taught me that you should dry out the acorns in the sun, then Wash them, and Bake them to kill all the living stuff in them. DUH! Read this dudes article for more details.

I sure felt like a goob as I made my hubs dis-guard the nastiness that was my fall decor...
