Here’s the supplies that you’ll need:Supplies for Acorn Pom Pom Mobile

  • 10 acorn caps
  • 10 pom-poms in fall colors
  • Five 20″ lengths of thread, twine, or yarn
  • One 24″ length of thread, twine, or yarn
  • Large sharp needle
  • Small branch 9″ to 12″ in length
  • Liquid glue

Let’s make the Acorn Pom-pom Mobile:

  1. Gather acorn caps and a small branch. Store these in the freezer for a couple of days to kill any beasties.
  2. Pierce a small hole in the center of the acorn cap. You can use a small hand drill, an awl, an ice pick, a large sharp needle, or a slender nail and hammer.
  3. If you can’t find the color pom-poms you want, color white pom-poms with markers to get fall colors.Color Pom Poms with Marker
  4. Thread the needle with a 20″ length of yarn. Thread an acorn cap onto the yarn.Thread Acorn Cap on Yarn
