I like to embrace the changing season by bringing a little Fall decor into my home. My DIY paper acorn is a cute project for lovers of Fall and is super-simple to make with either a cutting machine or a kraft knife. To make my paper acorn I used two shades of metallic paper in Antique Gold and Copper. The top is a shimmering copper color which I am utterly in love with. And for the bottom half of the paper acorn I used a rich gold metallic. Click on the SVG file below if you have a cutting machine or download the PDF if you are cutting by hand. Transfer the template to the metallic papers and trim with a craft knife. I used a low temperature glue gun to assemble the acorn but any good paper glue would also work. You can follow the tutorial below to see the assembly steps.
You could string a bunch of these paper acorns together to make a cute Fall garland, Place them in a bowl as a pretty fall decoration, or fill them with goodies and use them for your table place setting!
