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.
- I hook (5.50mm)
- 2 colors of yarn
- Tapestry Needle
This pattern is very simple and can be worked up within 30 minutes. You could have a lot of fun and make bigger ones or smaller ones based on your hook size and yarn weight!
