If you ask anyone in my house, I can’t seem to resist one leaf, one twig or one beautiful seed I find in the world around me. Since my passion for nature runs parallel for paper, of course, I’m adding PAPER ACORNS to the mix and can’t wait to get these into your hands. I’m sharing an extra little idea for those of you who have very small kids, too. I hope you’d like to Fall for acorns with me, too!
- PAPER ACORN PRISM PRINTABLE | HERE |
- PAPER Card stock and letter weight paper works well.
- Cutting Utensil
- Glue (I like using a glue gun but, double sided tape works, too)
HOW TO make PAPER ACORN
1 Print PAPER ACORN PRISM PRINTABLE. I like to print this directly on to the paper that I’ll use and gives less slippage.
2. Carefully cut template.
3. Fold Template and glue into place.
4. Cut Circle and stem for top. Place on top of prism.
I think there are so many ways to use these PAPER ACORN PRISMS right now. For fun, for decorations, as Seasonal Party Favors (Leave a final flap open). Hostess Gifts and more. I’d love to see what you do with these. I’d love to see how you use my tutorial. I’d be so happy if you shared them on Facebook and Instagram with a link to me or pass this post on to a friend you are thankful for.
If you’re a long reader of willowday, then you know that I really like to make side-by-side with kids. I’ve run ART Camps with kids painting on cardboard versions of leaves and acorns, like above.
TO CREATE a SMALL KIDS VERSION for them to make by your side, this is what you’ll need:
- Acorn template cut from cardboard
- Paints (or whatever medium your kids like. Chalk and Pastels are wonderful, too, on cardboard.)
- Set up a table with trays for the kids to create on.
- Place the cardboard acorns in the middle
- Place glue, glitter, paints or desired medium in the middle
- Invite your kids to create!
If you do a side-by-side session, I’d love to see how it goes and what you do. My children are born within three years which meant they were all toddlers at the exact same time with very different fine motor skills and attention spans. Combining projects like this was how I commonly worked with the 3 and would love to hear how it goes for you. As a mom, we have to many small tweaks that I might not note. If you have a question, feel free to contact me.
Did you catch yesterday’s post: NOVEMBER THINGS. I shared 21 willowday projects to make this month. Wishing you a wonderful day.
