Fall has so many beautiful elements. In this free crochet pattern and video tutorial, you will find a pattern for a tiny pumpkin, acorn, sunflower, leaf, and vine to add to your crochet fall decor.
Below you will find the complete pattern and instructional photos for these Crochet Fall Decor Tiny Accent patterns. You will also find all the material list, stitch list, gauge, video tutorials (as they are released), and sizing information.
One Season, So much Crochet Fall Decor
Fall has so many beautiful elements from leaves to pumpkins to acorns. In this pattern set, I wanted to give you patterns for all the fun fall elements so you can use them to decorate your home and more.
Check out the pictures in the post to see how I used my crochet fall decor tiny accents. They can be placed in existing decor items, in your hair, on a crocheted ear warmer, or add them to a ribbon to use as a decorative belt.
Substituting the Yarn
I just used scrap yarn that I had on hand which tends to be a medium worsted weight yarn. You can use any yarn for this project. Thicker yarns will create larger decor pieces while thinner yarn will make smaller decor pieces.
The Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern
Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a printout of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted large font PDF (printable) version of the pattern that can be purchased on Etsy or Ravelry. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag.

Crochet Fall Decor Tiny Accents
-Written in US terms.
– I do not count my CH1, turning chain, as a stitch.
– Start your pumpkin with a long starting yarn end. This will be used when gathering up the pumpkin.
Tiny Crochet Pumpkin
CH 12 with main color yarn. (Gold, Orange, or White in photos.)
Row 1: SC in second CH from the hook, SC in next ST, HDC in next 7 CH, SC in last 2 CH. (4 SC, 7 HDC)
Rows 2-20: CH1, turn, BLOSC in first 2 STs, BLOHDC in next 7 STs, BLOSC in last 2 STs.
Fasten off leaving a 12-inch long yarn end. Follow the steps below to gather, stuff, and sew up the pumpkin.
Step 1. Sew a gathering stitch along the bottom of the pumpkin and pull tight. Then, make 2 stitches to secure the gather and close up the bottom of the pumpkin.
Step 2: Use a whip stitch to sew the first and last row of the pumpkin base together. When you reach the top of your pumpkin, knot your two yarn ends together to secure.
Steps 3 and 4: Sew a gathering stitch around the top of the pumpkin. Stuff your pumpkin. Pull the gathering stitch tight to close the top. Make a knot to secure the top of the pumpkin.
Fasten off and weave in the ends.
Note: Leave a long starting and ending yarn end to use to attach the pumpkin stem to the pumpkin.
Row 1: CH3 with brown or green yarn, SC into the second and third chain from the hook. (2 SC)
Fasten off leaving a 5-inch yarn end. We will use this to cinch down the pumpkin, as shown in the photos below.
Cinching the Pumpin
Step 1: Use a yarn needle to thread your yarn ends from the top to the bottom of the pumpkin.
Step 2: Pull the yarn ends tight and knot them together. Clip your yarn ends and hide them inside the pumpkin.
Now, your tiny pumpkin is complete.
Crochet Acorn Pattern
– Acorn’s bottom is crocheted in continuous rounds. Use a stitch marker to keep track of your rows.
– The Acorn top is crocheted in joined rounds.
– For the Acorn top, the CH2, does not count as a stitch.
Note: If you find that the acorn top is a little too small for the acorn bottom, then change the 12 DC to 13 DC in the pattern. I found that this change depends on the thickness of the yarn color. Some colors like dark brown tend to be thicker than lighter colors in the same yarn brand.
Row 1: With coffee brown yarn: Make a Magic Circle, CH2, Work 12 DC in magic circle. SLST to first DC. (12 DC)
Alternative Row 1: CH3, Work 12 DC in third CH from hook. SLST to first DC. (Use this Row 1 if you do not want to use a magic circle.)
Row 2: CH1, SC in next 12 STs. SLST to first SC.
Fasten off leaving a long yarn end to sew the acorn top to the acorn bottom. You can also use hot glue to attach the two pieces.
Row 1: With Coffe Brown yarn, CH 3, SLST to the second and third CH from the hook. (2 SLST)
Fasten off leaving a 4-inch yarn end. Thread both yarn end through the top of the acorn top and knot them on the underside to secure them.
Row 1: With buff (tan) yarn: Work 4 SC into a Magic Circle. (4 SC)
Alternative Row 1: CH2, Work 4 SC in second CH from hook. (4 SC)
Row 2: *Work 2 SC in next ST* repeat from *to* a total of 4 times. (8 SC)
Row 3: *SC in next ST, Work 2 SC in next ST* repeat from *to* a total of 4 times. (12 SC)
Rows 4-6: SC in next 12 STs.
Fasten off and weave in your ends. Lightly stuff the acorn bottom with polyfil. Use the last yarn end of the acorn top to sew the acorn top to the acorn bottom. You can also use hot glue to attach the two pieces.
Note: Sunflower is worked in joined rounds. The Chain 1 turning chain does not count as a stitch.
Row 1: With Coffee Yarn, Make a Magic circle, Ch1, Work 10 HDC into the magic circle. SLST to first HDC. (10 HDC)
Alternative Row 1: CH2, Work 10 HDC into the second CH from the hook. SLST to first HDC. (10 HDC) (Use this row if you do not want to use a magic circle.)
Note: Change to gold yarn during the last slip stitch of Row 1.
Note: If you want to work row 3, then just drop your dark brown yarn, but do not fasten it off.
Row 2: *SLST to the Back Loop Only of the next ST, CH5, SLST to the third CH from hook, Work a DC in next 2 CH, SLST to the Back Loop Only of the same ST.* Repeat from *to* a total of 10 times. Fasten off Gold Yarn. (Each petal should be made of 1 SLST and 2 DC.)
Row 3 (Optional): Push your hook through the Back Loop Only of the next ST, yarn over with the dark brown (coffee) yarn, and pull a loop up through the stitch. Work a surface slip stitch into the Back Loop Only of every ST of Row 1. Once you make a complete circle, fasten off and pull the final yarn end to the back of the sunflower.
This row is shown in the photo above using a lighter brown yarn so you can see the row better. I recommend using the same yarn color are Row 1 when working this round.
When your sunflower is complete, weave in your ends. Get the flower wet and lay it flat to dry. Gently pull on the petals to shape them. When the flower is fully dry it will hold its shape better.
Note: You can adjust the length of this vine by adding more chains to the starting chain. Any number of chains will work.
Row 1: Work 2SC in the second CH from hook, Work 2SC in each CH across. (28 SC)
Fasten off leaving a yarn end to sew the vine to your project.
Note: The leaf is worked in all one row. You will work in both sides of the turning chain.
CH 7 with Green Yarn
Row 1 (first half): Work a (DC, TR) in the third CH from the hook. Work a 2TR in the next CH. Work 2DC in the next CH, HDC in the next CH, SC in the next CH.
Row 1 (second half): CH 2, turn your work so you are working into the opposite side of the starting chain. SC in the next CH, HDC in the next CH, Work 2DC in the next CH, Work (TR, DC) in the next CH. CH2, SLST to the same chain that you worked the (DC, TR) to. CH 3 (or more). This last chain is your leaf stem.
Fasten off and weave in your ends. You can use the last yarn end to sew the leaf to a project if you like.
Project Inspiration and Using your Crochet Fall Decor Tiny Accents
At the beginning of this post, you probably saw several photos of how to use these crochet fall decor pieces. You can sew these pieces to a ribbon to make a decorative belt. They can be attached to bobby pins and used to decorate your hair.
I sewed a few pieces to an existing fall wreath to make it unique. These crochet pieces will also look lovely attached to an ear warmer, scarf, or make a custom pin. These pieces are also sized perfectly to be added to my gnome patterns.
Now you can crochet your own Fall Decor Accents to add to your holiday decorations. I hope you enjoyed the pattern and would love to see what you do with your pieces.
