Crochet A Jumbo Acorn For FALL!

Posted on Posted in Free Patterns

 

It’s FALL ya’ll!!!

That means its time to pull out the DIY crafts, yarn, glue gun and get to work!

So for this pattern, I knew I was wanting to make something that was an acorn. I thought about making a garland but then I started brainstorming…

I decided I was going to create an acorn large enough to be placed with other mantle decors. I love how it turned out! These beauties are extra big and perfect for using up scrap yarns as well as fun little pretend play items for kids.
