Acorns All Around

I enjoy seeing people decorating with acorns. I think the acorn is underused especially during fall. My mom has an oak tree and there were a ton of acorns on the ground when I visited last week. I actually decided to do a craft with the acorns and PUBLISH it!!!! Daring!!! I also listed a few other acorn crafts. Link up any acorn crafts or decorating below with Mr. MckLinky!
This acorn wreath was created by ME!!! Yeah, I am finally posting something I did! I'm not in love with it, but it is tolerable. If I did it again, I would definitely do some things different. HERE is the tutorial on it!
I would love to have a bunch of felt acorns like these from And Other Silly Things. Learn how to felt acorns with THIS video tutorial from Wildly Woolly.
As I was writing up my tutorial, I came across this wreath from MADE guest posting at Bloom. An acorn wreath that is different than mine. Go HERE.
These are acorns are actually little treats! Acorns made from doughnut holes at Family Fun! I think they are so cute!!! Go HERE to read how to make these.
I know Halloween is over, but you can keep these acorn pumpkins/jack-o-laterns in mind for next year. Click HERE if you want to read how Family Fun created these. I wonder if you could make these into a necklace. Another acorn good enough to eat! Head over to Bright Ideas to learn how to decorate this autumn cake HERE.
This is a unique idea of acorns. Make a bird feeder in the shape of an acorn using a wood bowl, a soda bottle and birdseed. Head over to Design Sponge to see more HERE.
Use acorns to decorate your table in different ways including using them as napkin ties. Visit Martha to see how to make these HERE.
These colorful acorns are made using tissue paper. Tuffet has the details HERE.
I love these jumbo burlap acorns by REal Ideas. Go HERE to see how she made them.

Have you done some decorating with acorns? Have you created acorns in some way? If so, link it up and share with us your talents!!!

  7. A helpful tip - if you can't find acorns on the ground or your in an area with no acorns or Oak trees you can buy acorns online from They sell Red Oak Acorns and the prices are pretty affordable.

  8. The tutorial video of how to felt the acorns is no longer viewable. It is now listed as "private".
