Fall Acorn Garland


I recently saw a cute acorn garland at Paper Source.  I thought it would be a fun to make one for our home. Once Halloween is over, I'm not totally ready to dive into Christmas decor. I still like to enjoy a little Fall decor until Thanksgiving.  But, I am a tired of orange and black.  


This color combo is one of my faves - gold, grey and linen. Using a couple pieces of scrap booking paper (2 shades of grey, metallic gold and silver, linen, and glittered gold paper), I cut out 12 acorns and 12 acorn caps. I quickly drew an acorn template on Adobe Illustrator. I made it into a downloadable file for you too. Just print it off and cut away. I really did nothing fancy with the assembly. I just taped the two pieces of the acorn together ad then just taped them all to a piece of bakers twine.  



Are you still in the mood for Fall, or are you just ready for Christmas?  I've heard that people are playing Christmas carols already. I'm not there yet.  But I am starting to think about Christmas present shopping.
