These happy little felt acorn ornaments are great for fall decor or a woodland themed Christmas and they're super easy to make.


They're super easy to make, in about 15 minutes each. I made a handy dandy tutorial video earlier this week during our monthly Crafty Hangouts. Are you following Crafty Hangouts? If not, check them out here and be sure to subscribe. I'm hanging out and crafting with them almost every month!

  1. Hi Jennifer. I just wanted to tell you that I love these. I am doing a new themed Christmas tree this year and think if I just change the colors this would be a WONDERFUL one to make for this years tree. Normally I always do the Disney tree and after begging the kids for years to change it up, last year I just said” I am bored every year, doing the same thing. From now on, Every other year I get to choose the theme for the tree” After explaining to the kids that Mommy never gets presents and this would be a present to me, they where all on board. Now if I could learn how to make friends, then I could maybe have an adult to hang out with and talk to every now and then……..

    1. Danette–I woud love to see the tree when you’ve completed it. As for friends, how about going to the Charity Wings Art Center to create? From social media it looks like people are hanging out with their friends all the time but that isn’t the case ;)
