DIY Coloured Felted Acorn Wreath
I don’t usually put a Christmas wreath on my front door, but this year I decided I would. In my craft cupboard I had a load of coloured felted acorns I’d made for a previous craft project, I decided to use them for my wreath. To show off these cute acorns I used twigs spray painted white as the base of my wreath. Not only does this acorn wreath look great it’s quick, easy and cheap (my favourite kind of craft).

What you need to make your Acorn Wreath
- Flat wire 12″wreath ring.
- Twigs; I just gathered an assortment on my daily dog walk. You want ones that have a bit of give in them as you will be bending them, and they should be at least a couple of feet in length.
- Acorn husks; again gathered on my daily dog walk.
- An assortment of coloured felt balls mine were approximately 15mm in diameter. Basically you want felt balls that will fit snuggly into your acorn husks.
- Glue gun, or strong clear glue like UHU.
- White spray paint
How to make your felted Acorn Wreath
- First make your wreath base by weaving your twigs into your wire wreath ring.
- Once you are happy with the amount of twigs in your wreath, spray paint the whole thing white.
- Making the felted acorns is really easy. Dip your coloured felt balls in water to wet them. This enables you to squeeze them into more of an egg shape. Then all you have to do is to glue them into your acorn husks.
- When you have finished your acorns (I used about 45). Glue them to your wreath
If I’d known making a wreath was so easy I would have done one before. I like all the different coloured acorns, I think they really stand out against the white.
