Go nutty!

Have the kids collect acorns, and use them (or any kind of nut) to make these beautifully simple candleholders. Place votives in a glass holder, and set inside a larger drinking glass or vase. Add nuts to the outside of the votive holder, and scatter around on the table runner. 

Hint: Whenever you decorate with acorns, pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds or so to kill any worms living inside. Otherwise, they'll chew their way out, leaving holes in the acorns as they make their way onto your table.
