oak gall christmas balls

about a week ago i noticed a lot of galls had dropped from the oaks.  i picked one up and admired all the interesting knobby protrusions it had and thought it could somehow make a really neat christmas ornament.  i collected a couple dozen and today i did a little experimenting with some spray paint...

the paint is still a little tacky so i've got them hanging in the mill office to finish drying.  once they're dry i'll make some hooks for hanging them.

fun stuff.
