felted acorn ornaments

I was reading the paper one morning, and I saw a picture that immediately made me think of Donni from
The Magic Onions. When I looked at the bottom, it was her shop featured. The acorns are so beautiful.

Then I drooled over the felted acorns fromLil Fish Studios

So with an afternoon to craft with the kids, we rolled some of our own. I needle felted the shape and we wet felted them into dense balls.

They are balls instead of oval so they don't fit quite right, but they are ours.

The kids are excited to give some to their teachers.

Pretty, soft and tiny. great for a tree.

I wanna eat them.

Another project crossed off the list.

thanks for looking,

I think they look great! What a good idea to needle felt them into shape and then wet felt it so they get harder. Will experiment with that some time. They will sure make lovely gifts!
