These lovely DIY acorn ornaments are easy to make. They will also make a nice decorative touch on top of a wrapped gift. Or maybe a collection in a bowl. My daughter wants to wear one as a necklace. I found the felting at Hobby Lobby in the dried flower area. Thanks to Honestly WTF for the cute project.
Ever since I experimented with needle felting earlier this year, I’ve been fascinated with the plethora of potential DIYs associated with this age-old technique. After spotting felted acorns at an adorable boutique in Carmel, I quickly discovered I couldn’t achieve the look with a felting needle (Honestly, fail!) Instead it required an easier method called wet felting which simply involves some hot, soapy water. Suffice to say, I’m obsessed and can’t wait to make a bevy of these felted knickknacks!
