Pinned It and Did It!

I'm on a roll.....two "pinned it and did it" in one week!  Woo Hoo!
This "pin" was found on one of Carola ~ Boxwood Cottage's pin boards.  Aren't these the prettiest acorns you ever saw!

Here's my version....I'm happy with how they turned out.  I made a dozen and plan to make another dozen soon.  I threaded some quilting thread through the acorn cap, glittered it with Diamond Dust (the inspiration acorns have silver German glass glitter) and then glued the cap to a felted ball.  Easy peasy!!


Now what shall I make next??

Marie, I think you should make more wonderful acorns and sell them- They are just TOO SWEET-
Oh you made me feel like christmas.

These are really fun! I think they'd look good in a mix of different colors too.

Some for me??? Hahahahaha! I love these and in diffrent colors, absolutely! I love the ones in the basket. You make me hang my head in shame...I've not made anything from my pinning yet. I know nothing about needle did you make these??

Ohmygosh...I saw those on Pinterest and thought they were cute. You did an amazing job...LOVE em.

And thank you for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment about the Bird Song tag, I really appreciate it! You are too kind.

Well, you are my inspiration for today!

These are way more adorable than anything I've seen! I bet you felted that ball, too, didn't you? I've always had trouble getting them felted well, but this is so inspirational, I just might have to have another try at it!

I came here because I received one of your wonderful tags in Karla's birdsong swap. I haven't posted my book yet -- hope to get it photographed this weekend and get something up soon. I'm already tardy in saying thanks, but I really do love your tag with its string nest! Thanks!
