Thanksgiving DIY: Acorn Garland Perfect For Family Crafting

Decorating, DIY | | | 1 Reply

Last Friday, we showed you how to throw a fun and easy craft party, and this week we’re back with a tutorial for the acorn garland we made that night. This acorn garland is perfect for Thanksgiving decorating, and so simple you can even make them with your children.




Supplies Needed:

  • Acorns and caps, separated. Acorns should be baked in a 200 degree oven for three to four hours so they are sterile.
  • Bakers twine
  • Paint and painbrushes
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Paper for covering your tableACORNS


Here’s how to do it . . .

  • First, select acorns and caps that match. (For instance, a large acorn should be matched with a large cap.)
  • Paint your acorns, one side at a time, until they are dry and can be flipped. It may take a few coats of paint, especially if you’re using metallic paints.
  • After your acorns are dry, add a generous dot of glue into the inside of the cap.


  • Thread the bakers twine between the cap and acorn, and press down firmly until all three pieces are secure.
  • Repeat until you have reached your desired length.
  • Hang and enjoy!

We suggest trying them hung over your fireplace or framing doorways.
