    Paper Bag Acorn Craft Instructions

    • Then shape it into a rounded point, like the shape of the bottom of an acorn.

    Step 2: Use the Acorn Craft Template

    • Use the printable template to cut an acorn top out of some construction paper. We used traditional brown for the top of our acorn, but you can choose whatever color you like.

    Step 3: Add the Top to Your Acorn Fall Craft

    • Glue the top of the acorn onto the flap of the paper lunch bag. That way when you put your hand in and lift the flap, the acorn tips his “hat”.
