One of nature’s gifts in the fall are acorns! We have a few oak trees in our yard so there are plenty of acorns to collect in the grass. They can be a big pain to clean up, but they are fun to use for crafts. Vanessa uses the acorn caps as whistles!! Not sure how she does it, but it is really loud. Rather than making noise, I like to make felt acorns with the caps!
First, collect a bunch of acorn caps.
Cut a circle out of felted wool and some scraps or two for stuffing. If you don’t have any felted wool or have not clue what that even is, a piece of material would work too! I made this felted wool using a secondhand wool sweater. I washed the sweater in hot water and it shrunk, making the threads really tight.
Squeeze a bunch of hot glue into the acorn cap.
Gather up the circle with the stuffing inside and stick it into the hot glue in the acorn cap.
Make a bunch more in different colors. Add a loop of yarn to each top for hanging or glue the felt acorns to a piece of twine to make an acorn garland.
Do you get acorns where you live or do you have some other kind of fun seeds to collect?
