a little DIY never killed nobody 🍂🌰
so we gon' craft until we drop.
Yes, while I was just about to finish my 2021 running challenge - 1000 km in a year - I spotted some beautiful acorn cupules on my way. Ok, I first made sure that I got my last kilometers in (#goals!), but at the same time, I made a mental note to come back to that place to collect some of them.
So I did, and back home, I started crafting some autumn ornaments with them while using my freshly arrived nettle yarn and silk ribbons (hello nature!). It only took me some minutes, so I think that this little autumn DIY won't kill anybody :)
