This year I am making velvet acorns. And, since I am going for a woodland theme holiday, I am also making some velvet acorn ornaments to use for my holiday decorating. You may remember my velvet pumpkins from last year…I had so much fun picking out velvet fabrics, sewing up the pumpkins, and adding real pumpkin stems.
I even posted some easy diy instructions on how to make the velvet pumpkins. Acorns are easy to make using the same method as the pumpkins…using real acorn caps. Aren’t they adorable! To make your own, just cut the diameter of the velvet (acorn) circle twice the diameter of the acorn cap you will be using with it.
To make the ornament, be sure to put a hole in the acorn cap and add a thread for hanging before you glue the cap to the velvet. For a little added holiday glitz, I also added some sparkle to the acorn cap with some glitter.
Why not take a walk in the woods this week and collect some acorns to make some velvet acorns?
They are easy to make and add a beautiful woodland touch to your fall decor.
You may also want to start on some holiday ornaments!
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Remember to take pleasure in simple things, Jackie
