Acorn Pin Cusion


Fall is in the air and I found some sweet little acorns while on a walk in the woods in Dover, a charming town right outside of Boston.  The caps seemed to come right off so I thought that they would make a cute pin cushion cap.  These would also make great place markers for a dinner party with embroidered or even written names either attached to the acorns or sewn into the fabric.
What You'll Need:
  • Circle to trace, I used a jam jar lid
  • Some yarn or cotton balls for stuffing
  • Scissors and pen
  • Scrap fabric 
  • Acorn caps
  • Glue gun
  • Needle and thread

Directions:
  1. Trace a circle on your fabric, cut it out.
  2. Fill the center with stuffing.
  3. Sew the edges of the circle and cinch.
  4. Put a dab of hot glue inside the acorn cap and press the sewn edges of the fabric into the cap.
