Autumn craft – Acorn People

9 Oct

P1020620 (2)

I love these little acorn people.  They are so simple to make and can be put together with minimal cost or effort. We collected the acorns on our recent woodland walk and we already had everything else in our craft box.

You will need:

Acorns including the hats!

Wooden beads

Glue gun

Felt scraps

Glue a wooden bead to the top of an acorn and then glue a hat onto the top of the bead.

Cut a scrap of felt into a scarf shape and stick this around your acorn.

Draw a face onto the wooden bead and you’re done!


The children have had lots of fun with these and have already made them some little beds!

    Love them 🙂 I have a feeling my little one would try to eat them right now but maybe a craft for next autumn.
