I crocheted this bowl...sort of adapting a pattern from two different free online patterns...from three half-used skeins of wool from Goodwill! I loved the color combo of these three yarns and took a chance to see if they would felt well together. And this time it paid off! I spent less than $1 on the yarn, so I was pleased with the end result.
There is some mohair in the yarn I used all the way through, so it is slightly fuzzy.
My sister and I made felted acorns a year ago when she was at my house for a crafting weekend.
I must say I have been addicted to wool acorns since then.
These wool balls are wet felted (except for the stripey ones which I admit to buying on etsy), allowed to dry and then hot glued into the acorn caps.
I love the pops of color combined with the natural elements of the acorn caps.
There are several different types of acorns here too....some were mailed to me from my sister Sue just last week.
I am linking to many of the linky parties on my side bar!
