RuJust like the squirrels who begin to collect acorns in the Fall, now is a good time for us to collect them as well to use in acorn crafts. Obviously the squirrels aren’t using them for crafts, but for food, which means the ones we collect need a little care before using them. I explain how to clean and dry acorns for craft projects in my bucket of acorns Christmas ornament post.
I came up with this collection of acorn crafts that I found to be the most creative and perfectly rustic chic to use in home decor.
Rustic Chic Acorn Ball Decoration
This stylish acorn ball uses just the acorn tops. I love the idea of making one for hanging, like this one, but you could also make a few to fill a basket for a warm table decoration. Try mixing some of these with my snowball craft balls!
I’ve seen a few different acorn wreaths and they all are pretty cool but I had not seen, until now, the added hazelnut flowers. This, to me, gives it that extra wow!
Here is a simple way to adorn some boxes with a natural “knob”. Since all you have to do is glue an acorn to a box top, it hardly passes as a craft but it is a fun idea!
Because acorn caps float, they make a wonderful rustic base for a mini floating candle.
Add some playful color with this fun acorn craft. It is actually easier than it looks! The mix of colors with the warm rustic acorn tops are a great combo.
