Pennsylvania’s Beth Petricoin has created a polymer acorn with a surprise inside.

This little beauty (formerly a small plain glass jar with a screw-on lid) contains a battery-operated tea light. A thin layer of tinted translucent clay over the jar gives the light a warm glow.

Wouldn’t these look great on your holiday table? Beth shows more on her Flickr page. Don’t miss her polymer quilling experiment.
