Acorn Necklace, It Is A Fun Fall Craft And Service Project


Time to read 1 min

We all love the colors of Fall. Along with the leaves changing we also have a number of acorns falling from the trees.

Fall is the perfect time to embrace the beauty of nature and get creative with crafts. Making an acorn necklace not only allows us to explore our artistic side, but it can also be turned into a service project. By collecting acorns and creating unique necklaces, we can spread joy and positivity to those around us. It's a wonderful way to celebrate the beauty of fall and bring a smile to someone's face. So, let's gather our acorns, let our imagination run wild, and create beautiful acorn necklaces while making a positive impact on our community!

Our troop decided to use a few of these acorns to make hanging acorn people to be handed out at a local nursing home to bring smile to their faces. The girls went on a hike and gathered acorns that were big enough to draw a face on and to give it some hair. Some acorns lose the tops when they fall from the trees the girls gathered those up as well so they could glue back on to give it a hat.

Today I want to share this very simple craft that the girls can make for themselves or choose to give it to someone as a gift or do what our girls did and turn it into a service Project.

What you need:

  • Acorns
  • Markers
  • Glue (you can use tacky glue)
  • Yarn or other material for hair

How to make craft:

  1. Gather up the acorns you want to use. This can be a two part event, take your girls on a hike and enjoy the outdoors and while walking pick up some acorns to use for this craft. (I know we are suppose to leave no trace, and not disturb nature, so we explained the girls we would never pull a acorn off the tree it had to be on ground already)
  1. Using your scrap pieces of yarn and ribbon you can give your acorn hair and even a hat band that is connected to longer ribbon if your turning this into a necklace.

3. Using the marker you can add the face to the acorn and your all done!
