Fall Decor

Hey there stampers!  Did you know that Stampin' UP! products make the best home decor items?  As I was going through some of my crafting supplies- I came across a bag of acorn caps and some felted balls.  I thought "what on earth could I possibly create with these?"  Then it hit me!  Acorns!  But there was an issue- all my felted balls were natural white and not colorful and fun.  

That's where Stampin' UP! comes in.  Using some rubbing alcohol, a Stampin' Spritzer and several different colors of re-inker we have a bunch of fall colored acorns!

The picture above shows what supplies I used to create these adorable little acorns.  

It took me a little while but I was able to create acorns in Blackberry Bliss, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Pear Pizzazz and Pretty Peacock.

After the felted balls were dyed and dried I adhered them to the acorn caps using hot glue.

The little acorns are the most adorable little things ever!  They are smaller than a quarter in size and when I get more of them created- they will decorate my tiered tray that I change out for every holiday.

These larger acorns are approximately 1-1/2" from top to bottom.  Just like in nature- sizes and shapes vary which is part of what makes them so stinkin' cute!

These seriously are the most effortless fall decor items!  They require very little work and come out oh so cute!
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Where did you get the "felted balls"? These are super cute!

  2. Hi Deb!
    I had felted these balls a while ago from wool roving. I know there is a shop on Etsy called TheFeltPod that sells pre-felted shapes. They likely have preferred balls as well. Thank you for your kind words!

  3. So cute, so autumnal and so fun! Always look at acorn caps thinking they would make a cure craft, insight have to collect some now...
