Snakes + Acorns = Snakorns

October 9, 2008

That’s right — snakorns!

It’s a lingua crafta mashup in honor of two great DIYs I discovered via ThreadBanger. One, a pair of Martha Stewart-approved snakes made from hardware-store paraphernalia; the other, a fuzzy take on the oak tree’s seeds.

Martha’s Creepy Snakes, manufactured from pipe insulation, nails, map tacks, and paint, are hilarious. Just look:

Can you imagine these in your trees come Halloween? See, I told you. Hilarious.

Betz White’s Felt Acorns — a combo of felt balls and real-life acorn caps — are a sweet tribute to fall:

How-tos on Martha’s and Betz’s respective sites. Have fun.

  2. Aren’t they? I’m dying to make my own — just have to find some acorn caps.

    You need to make the snakes! Way cool–in an Indiana Jones “Why did it have to be snakes” sort of way:-)

  4. You’re right! Great call, Mom. :)
