Acorn House

Gone is Summer. Gone is Halloween. Soon Fall turns into Winter and before we know it, it’s Christmas.

I’ve packed away my Halloween decor to make room for Christmas and soon I will pack away my Fall decor too – but only because I haven’t got room for it. Lots of the Fall decorations can easily be used for Christmas. This cute decoration I just made definitely can!

This adorable Acorn House from Simply Crafty Svgs, is one of the easiest houses I’ve ever made and still is darn cute.

I made it in the original size – very unlikely of me 😉 It’s cut on my Silhouette Cameo and I used the Solid Scorelines option. I’ve started doing that most of the time unless it’s something very small. Then it can be a pain to fold 😀

I used AC Cardstock in Coffee and Chocolate along with patterned paper from DCWVs “Cider Woods.” It’s difficult to see but the paper for the bottom is copper foiled acorns 😉 So I took a close up:

All edges are inked with Distress Ink from Tim Holtz and I used gold Vellum behind the windows and door.

The door knob is a copper colored enamel dot and I tied some raffia around the stem and added the cut-out leaves plus some small berries from my stash of nature materials.

Lastly I added a string of Fairy lights inside – the glow is fantastic ❤

Oh how I love acorns – and I usually use them to decorate for Christmas too along with pine cones and pine branches.

Well that was that – now it’s time to concentrate on Christmas 🙂 I have a lot of things I want to make and I bet I can’t fit them all inside my house 😀
