Make this Rustic Acorn Craft for Fall! I used a variety of pine cones that I bought already dried to make these decorative acorns.
This is a fun craft and will add a beautiful and unique touch to your fall decor. Make these for rustic acorns garland, add them to a wreath you’re making or just simply put them in a bowl to display.
Here’s how to make them…
- White Chalk Paint
- Small plastic Easter Egg (tops or elongated part)
- Lace ribbon or twine
- Hot glue gun
- Garden sheers

Tips on How to Cut Pine Cones
To get started, choose a few pine cones that have a top just slightly larger than your egg rim.
The round variety
I’m sure these have a name! I found these pine cones to be very tough and they had to be cut and shaped with garden sheers.
Long Pine Cones
I figured out that I could just twist the tops off of the longer pine cones with my hands. If I twisted one and the top was too small, I tried to use a middle section. Some of mine were so dry they crumbled but I had a bunch so I just grabbed another one.

How to Make Rustic Acorns
Paint the plastic Easter Eggs with White Chalk Paint and let them dry completely.
Hot-glue lace ribbon and/or twine onto the egg rims to decorate. Last, add a ring of hot glue all the way around the rim of the Easter Egg to glue the pine cone top on.
