A a worm came up and began to eat, though the hard, dry cup to the acorn sweet.

Where we live now we have an absolutely massive old oak tree, it must be at least 100! As a result we have plentiful acorns that my mum and sister have been collecting of late.

Gem tells me these were incredibly hard to thread,
she broke three needles!

My sis Gem has made this lovely acorn necklace for me, it looks so cute on, We're going to vanish it so it lasts longer, and it's going to be another christmas present for me, I sure am looking forward to xmas this year!


  1. That's such a cool idea, one of our drivers at work keeps bringing us conkers in, i do love autumn x

  2. That is so cute! I love acorns. I have an acorn charm floating around the house somewhere that I've been meaning to make into a necklace. =) What a lovely Christmas gift!

  3. Those are some giant acorns!! I love this idea. It's a cool way to mix up your jewelry.

  4. How on earth do you thread these?? Do you use a drill to get throughout the acorn?

    Looks fab :)

  5. @Talitha- All you need is a hard surface, lots of needles, and a strong wrist! We just pushed them right though! takes a fair bit of elbow grease though!

  6. What an absolutely lovely idea! I'd have never thought about doing this. It looks lovely too, although really difficult to make.


  7. This is the best thing I've seen all day today :) I can't imagine how hard it is to drill a needle through the shell, though.

    As a little girl, I enjoyed making bracelets from connecting dandelions and daisies, though they always ended up breaking apart!

  8. That necklace is actually amazing!

  9. wow! This is lovely. I have tons of acorns lying around! Should try doing this instead of throwing them at squirrels :) haha
