Learn how to make cute Acorn Cap Mushroom Ornaments with our step-by-step guide. Perfect for adding a whimsical touch to your holiday decor!
Depending on where you live, acorn caps can be found in abundance just by walking around outside (like in my yard!). Once they’re washed up, they make lovely craft supplies.
Today, we are going to use acorn caps in a new way. By hot gluing them onto a small section of a branch, we will make DIY acorn cap mushroom ornaments that are just the cutest!
Here’s how to make them!
How to Make Acorn Cap Mushroom Ornaments
Step 1. Gather Supplies
- Acorn Caps – (cleaned and ready for crafts using this method, if you collect your own.)
- Small Sticks or Branches
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
- Pruning Shears
Step 2. Cut branches into 1″ lengths using pruning shears.
Step 3. Dab hot glue into the underside of an acorn cap, and add a branch piece.
Hold to dry.
Step 4. Repeat for all of the acorn caps and branch pieces.
They will form little teeny acorn mushrooms.
Step 5. Cut a piece of twine and tie it into a loop to make a hanging string.
Step 6. Hot glue the bottom of the loop to the top of the acorn cap.
Repeat for all acorn mushrooms, until they each have a hanging string.
Your acorn cap mushroom ornaments are finished!
Aren’t they just the cutest little things?
They are so simple and yet quite striking hanging on a tree.
These tiny acorn cap mushroom ornaments are the perfect addition to a nature-themed Christmas tree, or used in rustic chic holiday decor.
They look lovely on a traditional evergreen tree, on a more modern flocked tree, or even on a white Christmas tree.
And, if you want to try something totally new, you could use a simple bare tree branch as your Christmas tree and these beauties would still look fantastic on that too!
