What you’ll need
Capped acorns
Tacky glue
Fuzzy yarn and wool
Permanent marker
Scissors
String

How to make it
1 Gather capped acorns and carefully remove the caps.

2 To make hair, put one large drop of tacky glue on the top of each acorn and press wisps of fuzzy yarn and wool roving into it. After applying a second drop onto the wisps, put the caps back on and hold them on for one minute.

3 Use a permanent marker to draw faces. Trim the hair, then make “chains” by tying string around the cap stem and securing it with a drop of glue.
