Donna I've never heard of acorn people before. That's why I like groups like this I'm always learning. I did do a google search and found this:

I found them.  As you can see, some of these are not complete.  They need their eyes drawn on.

They look really cute on your tree or as a package decoration.  Will try to organize how I do them and put instructions down for you.

These are so cute. Great idea for me to put together for our senior craft day .WE are doing Christmas in July next month I know they would love these. The little mouse on the left is adorable. I love mice ornaments for some reason.

To make acorn people.  You need: acorns, christmas material, pipe cleaners, poly stuffing, needle and thread, hot glue gun, magic marker,( grey felt and grey paint for the mice), spring clothes pins, assorted little packages, stars, etc for them to hold and a small jar cap.  

Trace around cap on back side of material.  Cut out circle.  Using needle and thread, make running stitch around material and gather slightly.  Stuff with poly and tighten and tack.  Cut two pieces of pipe cleaner for arms.  Glue to cloth ball, then glue acorn on its side so it looks like a head.  Using marker make two dots for eyes.  Glue onto clothes pin and glue decoration between its "hands".  

For mice, use cap and make circle on grey felt.  Paint the acorn, excluding the cap, grey.  Cut felt circle in half.  Bring two corners of the half circle together and glue one to each side of acorn for ears.  Use grey pipe cleaners for arms.

They make up pretty fast and really look cute on the tree.  Enjoy!

Acorns are in abundance on my farm!  I have to have them picked up in the fields because they are poison to the horses.  Did you want just the acorns or did you want the finished ones or both?  Let me know.  I would gladly send them out to you.   I am also willing to trade too.  Let me know what you want and pm me your address.

I would love to have 1 made by you as a keepsake and maybe 10 acorns for the craft projects that we're gonna do for our Christmas tree this year. I Love that it comes from your farm so it's super special. The seaglass I'll be using for the angels is white and my family and I collect it here on our beaches on Maui. I have to make the angels so I hope you can give me about 2 weeks, maybe faster cause my grandsons are away so it gives me more time :)))

Thanks so much! I will pm you my address and can you give me yours to?

EXCITED! :)))
