Sew and Tell: fabric and button acorns

I’ve been obsessed with acorns since the beginning of fall. I’ve been looking around but I couldn’t find any locally. I would love to fill a bowl or make a wreath clustered with acorns. Until then...

These little fabric acorns will have to do. I used the pumpkin tutorial that I posted about a few weeks ago but made them much smaller.

For the acorn cap, I used brown buttons and twigs for the stem.

I’m still hoping to find some real acorns – hopefully before the squirrels hide them all.



  1. Very cute, could see them all gathered in a mason jar or bowl!

  2. So cute and fun! That's such a neat idea :)

  3. Oh my goodness, these are precious. I already have a bowl of pinecones (collected by my 2 year old on various walks) on my sideboard, and I think a bowl of these adorable acorns would be a perfect complement! Or how cute would they be as placecards with a little tag on the stem! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Those are adorable!!! Love them! If you want real ones, take a day trip up to Idyllwild. They're everywhere. :)
