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 it 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 – 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. Join today to access the full photo 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!
