Colorful Crocheted Acorns - Free Crochet Pattern

If you're looking for a cute autumn decoration, these acorns are simple to make and look great in a bowl or scattered around a table. I found these acorn tops under an oak tree at a nearby church, but if you don't have oak trees in your area, you should be able to order some on Etsy.
