DIY Elegant Acorn Ornaments With Felting

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!

You’ll need:

  • wool roving
  • acorn caps
  • thread
  • drill
  • hot glue gun
  • dishwashing soap
  • 2 bowls
