I’m a huge fan of acorns and all the wonderful crafty things you can do with them but unfortunately, I live in a part of the United States that is known more for desert cacti than for towering oaks. I’m usually so envious of people who say they just walk down the street picking up acorns but not any more! Consumer Crafts has these great packages of acorns that are totally reasonable and so easy to craft with…and you don’t have to worry about any little critters catching a ride in your seeds. 😀
If you’re looking for a new fall wreath idea, I think this rustic acorn and burlap wreath is the perfect choice!
- Small Acorn Decorations (5 bags)
- 12″ Grapevine Wreath
- Glue Gun and Sticks
- Gold Glimmer Mist (optional)
- Burlap Fabric or Burlap Ribbon
- 1/2″ Double Sided Hercules Tape
Step 1. Gather supplies. I used five bags for my 12″ fall wreath and only had enough to cover the front. You might want to buy more bags of acorns if you’re looking for more coverage. Also, I had to cut a strip of burlap from a larger piece of fabric to make my bow. Using burlap ribbon would have been easier, but Consumer Crafts was all sold out at the time I ordered these supplies. Crafters love their burlap!
Step 4. Cut a 4″x20″ strip from the burlap fabric. Fold and hold in place with a piece of the awesome double sided Hercules tape. (One of my favorite craft supplies!) Pinch in the middle and wrap a smaller piece of burlap (2″x5″) around it to create a bow. Glue in place.
