Make Your Own Autumn Garland

This season is the perfect time to go on fall walks in those crunchy leaves, drink hot chocolate by the fire, and get out those WIPs (works in progress) that need to be finished.

Making this sweet autumn garland will allow you to bring some of those lovely autumnal colors inside.

You can add more or fewer acorns depending on how long you want the garland to be.

I also used some twine to thread through the stems of the acorns so that the rustic look was just right.

From crocheting or knitting your own pumpkins to creating your very own crochet acorns, you can make garlands, table displays, and more.

I used light brown and dark brown scraps left over from another project.

But you could use any colors to make your precious acorns; they don’t have to be in those colors.
