Stick and Acorn Men - The Magic Onions

Stick and Acorn Men

A few years ago, we made these sweet little acorn guys on one of our summer camping trips and I thought I’d share them again now…

We have decided that it is a necessity to take ‘magic eyes’ on a camping trip. We call these ‘magic eyes’ as just about anything can be turned into an enchanting creature with these sweet little things. The are particularly nice as they come with adhesive on the back and so can be stuck onto anything without using messy glue. They can be found at most craft stores.

Look at how these googly eyes can turn a simple stick in to a little stick man.

Here is ‘Mr Grumpy’ and ‘Mr Oh-My-Gosh’.

Here’s ‘Mr Happy’.

Here’s Miss Smiley and her acorn friend.

Here is my little Teddy and his stick friend.
Here’s ‘Mrs Pine Needle’.

And here is the entire army!

Amazing that a little packet of sticky-eyes can create such an assortment of creatures. Don’t forget to take some with you on your next summer camping adventure.
Blessings and magic

  1. oh, such a cute idea! :)

  2. My mum was wonderful with making creatures – she stuck eyes on gumnuts (off of gumtrees), fruit and vege in the fridge and when she first visited me in Western Australia she spotted all the grass trees and it was all I could do to stop her sticking giant eyeballs on them all – she said they so needed them :D

  3. Googly eyes make everything more fun!
    We found one of these “stick fellas” earlier in the week, who’d been hiding in the garden since our Summer (it’s mid-Winter here in Australia). I’m pretty sure he was last seen on a swing in our backyard.
