Supplies

How to Make It

1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out the pieces of your acorn luminaries.

Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending them through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully, that helps! If you’re having trouble with the score lines, check out this video.

 

2. Curl the edges of both the top and bottom pieces inward. Then, glue the little tabs to the inside, adjacent edge—one by one.

 

3. Lastly, add a little ribbon or yarn to the top of your acorn, and you’ve got yourself a cute little stem that doubles as a handle! Place a tealight inside and the acorn “lid” on top and you’re done.

These are super easy to make, and they just look so adorable! I designed them with illumination in mind, but you could definitely use them as little teat containers as well. They could also double as place cards if you tied a name tag to the “stem” on top! I’m sure everyone would get a kick out of seeing one of these fun little acorns as part of a place setting.

I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other fall freebies available on my blog!

Enjoy making your very own acorn luminaries! I hope you have as much fun putting them together as I did. Be sure to share your super cute results with me on Instagram!
