This project would make such a super centerpiece! I could see adding some metallic or glitter sprays or spirals in this or even intertwine some battery operated tiny rice lights! Add some real acorns too or tiny bows in golds, bronze, copper or other fall colors. This would make a super hostess gift or a nice family project that could become a nice heirloom for years to come! Super idea!
