- acrylic acorn charms (sometimes found with 'floral scatter' in craft stores)
- premade bracelet or chain to cut
- jump rings, medium and large
- jewelry plyers
- jewelry snippers
- hand drill
- lobster clasp
- earring hardware, if making earrings
Here is a huge pack from Amazon. Check your local Big Lots or Dollar Store, first, though. Who needs 200 of these? Maybe you do, but I don't.
4. Drill a hole through the tippiest top of the acorn. I'm talking about the little nub of a stem up there. (This is the trickiest step!) This step works best with a partner. Have them hold the acorn steady against the edge of a table while you drill the hole.
You can also use a vise or a clamp to hold the acorn, but put fabric around the sides so as not to scratch the acrylic.
5. Put one jump ring through the bracelet chain then close it. Now put one jump ring through the top of the acorn, then put that jump ring through the first one. Now close that one. Continue until you have attached all your acorns.
6. This is the last step...are you excited? Attach a large jump ring to the end of the bracelet chain.
