Dry rub onto the Acorn Ornaments before attaching to your tree. This adds an extra layer of drying to help protect your design from weather damage. You can also do this for your regular Christmas tree toppers and add a hint of tradition to your outdoor space. They will dry quickly without the need of a spray. The rubbing process will not dry out your design like other decorations.
Use the dry rub to seal the details of your design. Muffin Tinsel, for example, tends to shrink over time and the tiny holes don’t seem to be very large when you are finished. This will cause the tinsel to flop over and ruin the design. Acorn Ornaments has larger holes that will keep the details from being blown away in the wind. To make sure your dry rub does its job correctly you can place a drop or two of milk on it prior to application.
