A Handful Of Acorns


ACORNS
Making felt acorns is something I do each Fall.
Most years the acorn caps I find from the oak trees here are kind of small.
This year I found some huge ones.
I've made hundreds of these things and given them all away.
These ones I think I'll keep for myself.
Keeping it simple as always.

  1. Hi Miz Karen Ann!
    I love the acorns, and they "are" really nice big ones! I have the ones you made me in a special place. You are so talented my friend. I love the new banner too!
    Hugs!

    1. Thanks so much Dorthe! I would be happy to send you some the next time I make them. It's something I can work on while I'm watching TV as it doesn't require much thought or mess. I made hundreds of them for my daughters wedding a few years ago. She was married in the Fall and we scattered them around on all the tables for people to take as they left.
