This colorful felt acorn and oak leaf decoration makes a nice wall hanging or door decoration for the holidays.



  • felt in various colors ($.30 per square)
  • embroidery floss in your choice of colore
  • needle
  • pins
  • scissors
  • beads and buttons
  • paper templates
  • tracing paper
  • scrap cardboard, such as old file folders, etc.


  1. Create your templates. I traced some applique patterns and hand drew others. I transferred the tracings onto manila file folder paper or scrap cardboard.
  2. Select the color felt for the acorn cap and nut and trace around your template onto the felt.
  3. Cut out felt pieces.

  5. Place two nut pieces together and backstitch with embroidery floss to join.
  6. Fit cap pieces over nut section. It helps to pin the pieces in place to maintain alignment of the two parts, especially where the cap attaches to the bottom. Here you will again use floss to backstitch an outline around the cap and through the nut across the bottom. I also created a crosshatched pattern on the cap for added detail.

  8. Next trace and cut out your leaf pattern pieces. Follow the same assembly steps as you did for the acorn. Pin and work an backstitch to outline the leaf shape. I then added veins, again using a backstitch.
  9. I added two smaller acorns to the final project at this point. You can see them near the bottom. Play with your leaves and acorns and finalize your arrangement.
  10. Ad

  11. Once you are pleased with the final arrangement, you will need to attach the acorns and leaves to each other. I used colored beads and buttons and stitched through the pieces to create a somewhat asymmetrical hanging.
