You will need: acorns, buttons, thread or jewelry wire, and a hot glue gun.
1. Make sure your acorn tops are secure. If not, hot glue or super glue them to the acorn body.
2. Wrap some wire/thread as tightly as you can around the acorn stems. Hot glue or super glue it in place and make a loop with the other end (this is how you will hang the acorn on your necklace UNLESS you are handy with a drill).
3. Lay out your buttons and acorns as you would like them to look on the necklace - patterned or otherwise.
4. Thread your necklace and tie it closed - you're done! :) If you are using jewelry wire, check for sharp ends when you cut it. You may want to consider putting hot glue on the ends to keep it from poking your child's neck.
Consider making matching necklaces if you are doing this with your daughter and wearing them out somewhere together! :)
