16 Cute Acorn Ideas

I love acorns and this time of year is THE time for acorns. The other day I was at a  parking lot when  I noticed that there were clumps of acorns on a tree nearby which WE COULD REACH!! How wonderful! My daughter and I collected a few handfuls. The best thing about these acorns is that they were perfect. They weren't laying on the ground.

Okay, now what to do with them. My niece has tons of acorns all over her yard. I mean BUCKETS full. They don't like acorns very much. :)

Here are 10 really awesome things to do with acorns this Fall... or to make your OWN little acorns. ENJOY!

  1. Linda these are wonderful inspirations! Last year when my hubby was walking our dog he found tons of acorns ( he claims Izzy found them). He gathered a bunch and gave them to me when I got in the car. I remembered you have to bake them in the oven to kill the little bugs inside. I'm happy I did it. I have had felted acorns on my to do list for a couple of years. I still haven't done it, LOL. Pinned xo


So happy you came to visit today. Everyone is so busy but if you would like to leave a note for me, I would love it!!


I am the crafter extraordinaire (on this blog anyway.) I live with my husband, my son, David, in a cozy cape cod style house in Connecticut.
