We went for a walk to collect some of the conkers starting to fall to make a conker wreath.
What You Will Need:
- Brown paint
- Dressmaker pins
- Thread to hang
We cut out a ring of polystyrene into a doughnut shape.
We then painted our polystyrene ring with brown acrylic paint.
Once dried I used the dressmaker pins to push into the polystyrene and attach the conkers. The kids chose where to put the conkers and I attached them.
This would be lovely on its own as an autumn-themed door wreath.
We then painted eyeballs onto our conkers to give it a Halloween feel. I used some white emulsion that I had kicking about in the shed and coloured acrylics for the iris and pupils.
We tied a piece of thread to hang it with.
