Cute Mini Acorn Wreaths

3 Materials
30 Minutes

There is a park at the end of my street which is full of oak trees. I love to craft with acorns and have loads of acorn projects on my blog. I even made acorn-shaped pillows from old sweaters (see here).

There are also loads of squirrels in the park, who have got stuck into the fallen acorns. However, there are still a load of acorn caps on the ground. I decided to gather these caps for this fun craft.

You can simply wash the caps in warm soapy water.

Besides these acorn caps, the other things I used for this craft was some colourful felt balls and superglue. I also used a coffee jar lid to help with the making of the acorn wreaths.

The first thing to do is to put some superglue into the acorn cap and then add a felt ball.

This makes a cute felted acorn.

Carry on making these felt acorns, you will need about 8-10 for each mini wreath.

Next, stick the acorns together to form a wreath. Use super glue to stick them together. Place the acorns in the coffee jar lid to hold the shape as the glue dries.

Remove the acorn wreath from the jar lid and then finish off the wreath by adding a ribbon for decoration and hanging.

These cute wreaths are really quick to make and make a lovely ornament for the Christmas tree too.

When the squirrels haven't eaten all the acorns I have used them to make a beautiful Scandinavian decorated garland (see it here).

Suggested materials:

  • Acorn caps
