Acorn Makeover

The before picture....
And the after picture...
My sister Sarah and I felted some oval/ball shapes to go into these acorn caps. We let the deer eat the actual acorns (because they would have whether or not we allowed them to do so) and we used the caps!

We used wool roving in all sorts of fall-ish colors and needle felted or wet felted our creations.

I decided to use more than one color on each acorn, so there were some interesting colors.

This is one of my favorites...it has a nice marble look to it.

The tiny ones are especially cute.
The double ones have their own charm.To match or not to match is the question....
