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 use some twine to thread through the stems of the acorns, so that the rustic look was just right.

What You Need To Get Started

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

All you really need to get started are a few materials, including leftover yarns from your stash, fiberfill, and makers tools that include scissors and a darning needle.

The acorns are really easy to make and measure around 3″ when finished.

Great for stash busting too!

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

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

Making your own fall decor can make your home a gorgeous rustic look.
