Beaded Acorn


Weave together beads to make an acorn shape for fall!

Materials


Instructions


Step 1. Gather your supplies.

 

 

Step 2.

 

Cut your Cord to approximately 60” length. Wrap a small piece of masking tape around each end of the Cord. This will keep the ends of the Cord from fraying, and will make it easier to thread the beads on the Cord.

 

Step 3.

 

Fold the Cord in half and thread both ends of the Cord through (1) large brown Wood Bead.

 

Step 4.

 

Tie the looped end of the Cord into a knot.

 

Step 5.

 

Push the large brown Bead all the way up against the knot. The bead is the stem of the acorn, and the  loop can be used for hanging your acorn.

 

Step 6.

 

To create Row 1 of the acorn, thread (9) medium ribbed brown Beads onto the left hand Cord.

 

Step 7.

 

Take your right hand Cord and lace back through the beads from the other end.

 

Step 8.

 

Pull cords tight to form this row of your Acorn.

 

Step 9.

 

To create Row 2, thread (9) medium ribbed brown Beads onto the left hand Cord. Repeat steps 7 and 8 to create Row 2.

 

Step 10.

 

To create Row 3, thread (8) medium ribbed tan Beads onto the left hand Cord. Repeat steps 7 and 8 to create Row 3.

 

Step 11.

 

To create Row 4, thread (7) large tan Beads onto the left hand Cord. Repeat steps 7 and 8 to create Row 4.

 

Step 12.

 

To create Row 5, thread (7) square tan Beads onto the left hand Cord. Repeat steps 7 and 8 to create Row 5.

 

Step 13.

 

To create Row 6, thread (6) medium tan Beads onto the left hand Cord. Repeat steps 7 and 8 to create Row 6.

 

Step 14.

 

To create Row 7, thread (7) small tan Beads onto the left hand Cord. Repeat steps 7 and 8 to create Row 7.

 

Step 15. 

 

To create Row 8, thread (6) small tan Beads onto the left hand Cord. Repeat steps 7 and 8 to create Row 8.

 

Step 16. 

 

To create the Row 9, thread (3) large tan Beads onto the left hand Cord. Repeat steps 7 and 8 to create the Row 9.

 

Step 17.

 

To secure your acorn, tie a tight double knot at each end of Row 9, making sure the knots are snug against the beads. Trim excess thread with scissors. TIP: Have an adult use a hot glue gun to secure the beads together and help the acorn keep its shape when hanging.
