Autumn is my favorite time of year. Life slows down a bit and I savor the gentle rustle of leaves whispering in the trees, the aroma of apple pies and pumpkins breads, and the anticipation of Halloween.
On a recent visit to Galena, I stopped in Fiber Wild to pick up some wool for felting. I made a few things, but these acorns are my favorite. They are very, very easy to make and look adorable scattered throughout your fall decorated home, or gathered in a basket with some colorful gourds.
When the needle is pushed into the wool, the wool fibers become fused together as a result.
As you felt the wool, mold your felt shape into an oval. Once you are done felting, hot glue the acorn top to your felted shape.
Wool felt: $7.95 for a package of 1/4 ounce of 16 colors
Felting needles and felting pad: $12.00
Acorn tops: free
Hot glue: $0 hand on hand
Estimated project time: about 15 minutes per acorn.
