Now is the time to gather up all those fallen acorns, dry them out and prepare to make one of these 30 acorn craft ideas – perfect for fall!
Last week I shared with you how to prepare acorns for use with crafts and in your home decor. I thought it only befitting that I share with you some of my favorite ways to craft with acorns, let’s call it “30 Acorn Craft Ideas“.
One of my favorite things to do with acorns is to simply put them in a clear glass candle holder, surrounding the candle. The acorns add the perfect touch of rustic and helps to bring the outdoors in. Plus, they’d be adorable in a fall wedding reception, don’t you think!

Supplies vary, of course, depending on what acorn craft idea you plan to make. In the case of my candles, the only thing I needed was the candle vases and candles – which I already had. Here are a few supplies that might be nice to have on hand:
- florist wire
- glue gun and glue
- acrylic paint
- paint brushes
- drill and drill bit
- styrofoam wreath
- wire wreath
Although you can purchase most of these items online through places like Amazon (links provided above for convenience), you’re also very likely to find them in your local Dollar Tree. The key to shopping at Dollar Tree is to shop early in the season.
In fact, I was at my local Dollar Tree last week and they were putting out fall decor, Halloween and Thanksgiving items. So, shop early in the season for the best options.
