Heh, Conkers comes to mind when I saw this.. You crazy Brits! :D
no, no. Here in Britain they are conkers, too - found inside horse chestnuts. These are new acorns, which look pretty much just like conkers.
no, no. Here in Britain they are conkers, too - found inside horse chestnuts. I don't know why the author describes them as acorns - maybe he's confused.
:D lol
Those are conkers not acorns.
Oh no, they're new acorns. They're really brittle like that - did they already fall off your tree that new?
Great it looks like the worm in there puked or something and when you drilled it out all of the stuff fell out
<br>these would be good to sell
so thin is how u do it, thats what she said
Epic!!!! :0)
&nbsp;I wish I had a lot of acorns! Our one lone tree doesn't produce many. Probably enough for this kind of project, but I was aiming to make acorn flour. Some people say acorn bread is bland, but I think it is delicious. I just rarely have enough acorns. D&lt;<br /> <br /> Anyway, just a thought~<br />
Maybe if you dried the acorns it wouldn't do that. dunno how long you would have to dry them for though...
now to find some giant acorns and an oil drill, as well as suspension bridge cable... AND I CAN TAKE OVER TEH WERLD!!!!!
About 18 or 19 words in theres a spelling error. Maybe not an error.... well idk anymore
Oh yea its supposed to say "on". Thanks
Oh okay your welcome.
great-ible 5*
Mmmm, poisonous acorn butter. lol
It a worm !
Interesting. One thing I'd be worried about are little beetle grubs in them. Once when I was little I collected some nice sized acorns in an area forest... some time later I discovered that I had brought unintended guest in with them. I don't remember them having any outward appearance of being spoilt, so it was a bit of a surprise.
Oh dear lol, none have come out of mine :P
NIce instructable. When I was young, I made some money selling necklace made the same way. My only advice is to make sure that you use a string that does not rot, because the nut inside will eat it out.
Cool, yea i would suggest the wire
This is a very cool idea!
Thanks !
That is a great idea.
Thanks :P
So, have you had any problem with rotting since you made these? On a side note... I wonder if oaks are pro-life or pro-choice. Poor aborted baby oaks. Sniffle. lol :-P
No no rotting, they just get hard :P I think their pro-choice because they drop their babies so they obviously dont care lol
Them hardening is probably a good thing. Makes it a bit less fragile, I'd guess.
I tried this with some acorns from another tree other than a oak. Also i don't have a drill and when i used a nail it just cracked. can you try with a nail and see if it still works? great idea chap and if i can get the acorn from not breaking i will make hundreds of these.
Stopper is a good idea. Would be kind of a pain to get it nice and tight without. This is the first beading ible that I've seen someone use that on.
Cool! I'm not much on myself wearing bracelets, but I do love me acorns. I'm thinking of making a tassel of sorts for my bookbag. Great job, and as always, great photography!
Thanks dude ! i gave it to my mum afterwards lol
me neither i was just bored lol
If I'm not mistaken, that gooey stuff is tannic acid.
oh ok thanks !
thanks for the feature canida !!!
that's nice, I would have used something else than electric wire but it looks great!
yea you can use pretty much anything thats thin enough !! Thanks :D
That looks great. I bet you could sell 'em for 50p a pop, or more possibly.
Thanks Dude ! yea thats a good idea!
