Wool acorns

Make colourful autumn decorations using real acorn cups.

Have a go at 'wet felting' and make woolly acorns with this fun craft.

  • Look for empty acorn cups underneath oak trees.
  • Follow the instructions on the activity sheet to make the woolly acorns.
  • Turn them into autumn garlands, mini Christmas baubles or decorations for a fairy house!

This is a great project for autumn, when acorns fall from the trees. It's also calming and relaxing - so it's a great way to practice mindfulness!
