mixed paper acorn and oak garland

More than Oak-Kay

We love switching out our home decor every season, but it can get kind of pricey! Making your own decor will save you money, plus you can make it look exactly how you want it and in the right size for your home. This paper acorn oak leaf garland is a great example of that since you can easily adjust how long it is and switch up the paper colors.

If you want to give your garland more of a festive feel, dress it up with some twinkly fairy lights, flameless pillar candles, and ornaments. For an extra handmade touch, check out our DIY ornaments. Or you could add some felt woodland animals in between the leaves, like these felt deer or felt chipmunks.

Crafting tip: You can make this paper acorn oak leaf garland as long or as short as you’d like — just add more leaves and acorns!
