I like to make a new decoration for each season or holiday that comes along. I’ve never made an acorn and they are just so darn tiny and cute so I set out to sew one up.
To make it I printed this acorn shape at 175%. I then cut out two of them from my main fabric. I took a coordinating fabric and cut 1.5-inch strips using pinking sheers. I used my ruffle foot to ruffle them up and then sewed them along the top one inch apart. Then I made a stem, put it in place at the top, sandwiched between the two acorn shapes and sewed around the perimeter leaving a small opening for turning. Turn, stuff, and hand stitch the opening closed. I added a few small embellishments and that’s it.
For a kids craft, because my kids just love them, we made these fun snowmen and snow women cards. We just folded a 8×11-inch white piece of card stock in half, cut off triangles at each corner and a couple in the middle to make the sections and then decorated them. The kids loved it.
