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

It is also the time to learn a new craft, from knitting and crochet to quilting or even spinning!

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

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

The yarn I used was leftover from another project in light brown and dark brown.

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

I think they would look good in any colour!
