With the autumn season quickly approaching I thought it might be fun to share a tutorial for felt acorns. I had made a bunch a couple weeks ago in order to include a little something special in my packages I send out for my Etsy shop, Teaka Marie.
There are a few ways to create the balls and ways to stringing them. This just happened to be the process that worked best for me and gave me the look I wanted.
Snorkelbuzz. You will also need dishsoap, wool roving (basic wool that hasn't been spun), a hot glue gun, twin, and a drill with the smallest drill tip option.
This next step is only if you want to thread a string through the acorn cap so the final product can become an ornament.
I used the smallest drill tip I could find in my husband's tool box. It was helpful as he showed me how to properly use the tool so I wouldn't drill a hole into our kitchen counter. Basically he got me to us the wooden side of a chalk board eraser to hold the caps on while I drilled through. That seemed to do the trick. All you need is one small hole on the top of each cap and you're good to go.
