Heh, Conkers comes to mind when I saw this.. You crazy Brits! :D

analuisamontanez (author)bumpus2012-11-18

no, no. Here in Britain they are conkers, too - found inside horse chestnuts. These are new acorns, which look pretty much just like conkers.

analuisamontanez (author)bumpus2012-11-18

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

analuisamontanez (author)2012-11-18

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?

ninjasamurai (author)2011-11-13

Great it looks like the worm in there puked or something and when you drilled it out all of the stuff fell out

Cheesemango (author)2011-08-02

these would be good to sell

kwalden (author)2011-06-27

porcupinemamma (author)2011-04-08

Epic!!!! :0)

 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<

Anyway, just a thought~

red-king (author)2009-12-31

Maybe if you dried the acorns it wouldn't do that. dunno how long you would have to dry them for though...

mettaurlover (author)2009-06-07

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.

=SMART= (author)Jackabee2008-10-08

Oh dear lol, none have come out of mine :P

formateur (author)2008-10-07

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.

=SMART= (author)formateur2008-10-08

Cool, yea i would suggest the wire

megmcfer37 (author)2008-09-29

This is a very cool idea!

=SMART= (author)megmcfer372008-09-29

Thanks !

puffyfluff (author)2008-09-16

That is a great idea.

=SMART= (author)puffyfluff2008-09-29

Thanks :P

Grey_Wolfe (author)2008-09-15

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

=SMART= (author)Grey_Wolfe2008-09-15

No no rotting, they just get hard :P I think their pro-choice because they drop their babies so they obviously dont care lol

Grey_Wolfe (author)=SMART=2008-09-15

Them hardening is probably a good thing. Makes it a bit less fragile, I'd guess.

treesneedtobehugged (author)2008-09-15

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.

Grey_Wolfe (author)2008-09-15

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.

Bran (author)2008-09-14

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!

=SMART= (author)Bran2008-09-14

Thanks dude ! i gave it to my mum afterwards lol

=SMART= (author)Bran2008-09-14

me neither i was just bored lol

FreshPineSent (author)2008-09-14

If I'm not mistaken, that gooey stuff is tannic acid.

=SMART= (author)FreshPineSent2008-09-14

oh ok thanks !

=SMART= (author)2008-09-14

thanks for the feature canida !!!

lordofthedonuts (author)2008-09-14

that's nice, I would have used something else than electric wire but it looks great!

=SMART= (author)lordofthedonuts2008-09-14

yea you can use pretty much anything thats thin enough !! Thanks :D

shooby (author)2008-09-14

That looks great. I bet you could sell 'em for 50p a pop, or more possibly.

=SMART= (author)shooby2008-09-14

Thanks Dude ! yea thats a good idea!
