felt ornaments acorn and oak leaf

We’re nutty about the holidays

Krista used a palette of soft greens and browns to give these felt acorn ornaments a natural look. You can use the same felt colors we did or explore all of our felt sheets for more ideas. The felt shapes are easy to cut by hand, and our tutorial will show you how to assemble the acorns and add realistic details, like a lattice pattern to the acorn caps and stitched veins to the oak leaves.

Embroidery stitches used: Blanket, whip, ladder, lattice, and double-running stitch. For extra guidance on some of these stitches, check out our free embroidery guide.
