DIY the Perfect Present Topper

I love adding a little handmade touch to my wrapped gifts, and these acorn-topped tassels are just too cute for words! Besides making your gifts seem more special than ever, they also add a sweet personal touch to a bottle of wine or holiday baked goods. Keep reading for my supersimple how-to. These are so fun (and easy) to make that I guarantee you won’t want to stop!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Glue gun
  • Scissors
  • A small branch of long pine needles
  • Twine
  • Acorn caps (with the nut removed)

To begin, pluck a few pine needles from the branch, and cut a length of twine about 8 inches long. Bundle the needles together, and wrap the twine securely around the top, leave the ends of the twine long so that you can knot them together to create a loop for hanging. Now add a drop of glue to the inside of the acorn cap, and secure it to the top of the bundle. Voilà! You’re done!

Tip: The acorn nut usually pops right out, but if you have trouble removing it you can use a nutcracker.
