How to make Christmas Acorn Baubles

I got the idea for this craft while we were in Japan. My charges had gone for a nature walk around the hotel and came back with lots of amazing seed casings. It would have been great to bring some of them back, but we didn’t. Amongst them were some cupules (the cup) from acorns. When I saw them I immediately thought they would make perfect Christmas acorn baubles if they were paired with a bell.

Make sure that you follow my Christmas board on Pinterest, and don’t forget to pin it for later.

This isn’t a hard craft at all and only takes about 5-10 minutes to do, so is perfect as a time filler. We did ours before heading out to see Father Christmas.

You will need:

  • Acorn cupules (their hats)
  • Mini bells
  • Glue*
  • Paint (optional)
  • Paintbrush
  • String

* A hot glue gun is perfect for this, but normal PVA will work just as well, it will just take longer to dry.

First off you need to go for a walk to collect your acorn cups. As pretty much all the leaves have now fallen you will have to dig around a bit to find them. Let them dry for a while at home before adding the bells.


EC loves to use the glue gun, so was in his element doing this. I did give them the option of painting the cups before hand, but neither of them wanted to. They said they would look better if they weren’t painted. I did paint a couple of them, and I do have to agree with them, they do look better without it.

Fill the cup with glue and then press the bell into it.

Finally add some string to the top and then it will be ready to add to your Christmas tree.
