Fall Wreaths with Acorns

Fall Wreath with Acorns - Decorate your door with this beautiful acorn wreath! #diy #autumn #wreathI know it’s just barely August but since my favorite season is just around the corner, I can’t stop daydreaming of crisp breezes, apple cider, and sweet little boys in Halloween costumes. I know I say it every year but I absolutely adore everything about Autumn! The colors, the scents, the food…love it all. Since so many of you are crazy about Fall as well, I thought you might want to get a heads up on your Fall wreath door decor. I originally created this tutorial for Crafts Unleashed where I received supplies and compensation for the post.

Fall Wreath with Acorns

Materials

Instructions

1. Collect acorns. If you’re lucky, you live in an area where you can naturally find acorns. I, unfortunately, live in a part of the country that is more well known for blistering heat and cacti than for gorgeous towering oaks. Luckily, Consumer Crafts offers great value bags full of perfectly sorted acorns. They’re clean, easy to use, and you don’t have to worry about any unwanted pests catching a ride in the acorns!

Pinch in the middle and wrap a smaller piece of burlap (2?x5?) around it to create a bow. Glue in place.

    I made the wreath it was beautiful but it took me a week after I made it to put a ribbon on and hang it on the front door (facing West). Hung it on the door and left to run some errands….came back 2 hours later and it was hysterical…there were acorns on the window , on the door and in between the door in a pile…I couldn’t stop laughing…most people worry about squirrels I had the sun…hummm wonder what glue will work better? Happy crafting :)
