Fall Leaf and Acorn Paper Craft Tutorial

Fall Paper Craft with Leaves and Acorn - template included!

Fall Paper Craft

This whimsical fall leaf and acorn garland ornament was inspired by one of the craft books I picked up on our trip to Germany. It’s a simple project that will add charm to your space. You can hang it in a window or on a cabinet or door knob. I have one dangling from my fireplace mantle.

Here are some step by step directions for you to create your own fall ornament.

Supplies needed:

1. Print the leaf and acorn pattern template on card stock and cut out.

2. Trace the leaves on fall colored card stock. You will need two of each. Make sure that you flip the template over when tracing the second leaf. You want them to line up properly when gluing them together.

For the acorn, you will want to trace the nut section on the light brown paper and two caps on the dark brown paper.

3. Cut them all out.

5. Use a needle and pincushion to poke a whole through the middle of each circle.

6. Apply tape to one side of one of the acorn caps. Place the light brown nut on top.

Cut a 20″ piece of illusion cord and lay one end on top of the tape.

Apply tape to the second cap and attach to cover the string.
