I was inspired by this colorful acorn cap crochet garland by ing-things to create my own acorn decor.
I love how these colors don’t quite follow the traditional fall color palette. I opted to go for bright colors as well!

Cut your yarn leaving a long tail and finish off.
Weave the yarn through all 4 of the last stitches and pull tight.
Secure the yarn tail by weaving it through the acorn.
Once I completed all of my acorns, I strung them onto a piece of baker’s twine to create a garland.
