I personally haven’t had much luck with printing on construction paper. I recommend printing your template on white paper, cutting it out, and tracing it onto construction paper if you want construction paper acorns.
Alternatively, grab some brown craft paper for your printer. It is more durable than construction paper and usually works much better in printers.

- Kraft paper sheets are made of quality paper. Sufficient thickness, not too thick or too thin, not easy to tear apart, reusable and durable, you can...
- The brown kraft sheets measure 8.5 x 11 inches.
Acorn shapes previews
I created several different templates so you can pick your favorite acorn template size to use with your fall crafts. All eight of the templates are in the same file in PDF format. The download link can be found below the preview images. (Look for the row of purple arrows pointing the way.)
There are two different styles of acorn templates: blank acorns and acorns with crosshatched caps. Both designs are available in four sizes from a large, full page sized acorn to little acorns that are just over 2″ high.
For even smaller acorns, print the pages to scale at less than 100% or print the pages multi-up. For example, printing the smallest acorns at 50% will produce acorns about 1″ high.
