Cute Fall Craft Idea: DIY Fuzzy Wooden Acorns5:41 PM
I love crafts that are super simple and take just minutes to make. I created a burlap bag full of these adorable Fuzzy Acorns on my last trip to Walmart HQ last month, as part of seeing all the fun holiday activities moms can do for their families!
As you know, with the family so busy, I rarely have time to craft. I love that this idea took no skill, just a little time. You can even have older kids help!
To make these, you'll just need the following supplies, all which can be found in the craft department at Walmart:
- Round wooden beads
- Assorted "brown" fuzzy pipe cleaners
- Hot glue gun and glue
- Burlap square
To make the acorn caps, curl up your choice of pipe cleaner in a spiral snail shell shape, just large enough to cover your "acorn", and snip the rest of the pipe cleaner off for another acorn cap. Glue this spiral flat-side down to the top of your wooden bead. Continue making these until you have a few handfuls. (For extra personality, try 2 colors of pipe cleaner for your acorn caps.)
Now, you can create a very simple burlap envelope by folding in the corners of the burlap square so that they overlap slightly in the middle. Secure the bottom three corners in place by gluing them together.
Take the top corner, making sure it comes down to overlap the bottom corner by at least 1 inch, and glue a wooden bead in place near the corner. Now, to the bottom flap, affix a simple "loop" made from pipe cleaner with your hot glue.. When everything has cooled, fill the envelope with the acorns, and close the envelope by hooking the bead through the loop you created.
This craft is not only simple, but it's affordable, too!
What fall or Halloween crafts do you have on your to-do list this season? Remember that you can keep more money in the budget by getting your supplies at Walmart. They really do have everything you'd need for a serious crafting session!
