It can't be that hard, can it?

I have seen on Etsy for a long time now those cute little acorns that are felted into real acorn caps. Well how hard can it be thought I! I already had the wool part and my lovely former neighbor Rose collected me some acorn caps from her garden. So this weekend, hopefully I will give them a try. I actually have my wish granted for getting a whole extra hour when the clocks go back this weekend. I always love it in the fall when we get to do that. So next week you may see some darling little acorn pictures posted on here. Or you could just see pictures of my poor bandaged fingers as those felting needles are pretty darn sharp.

Yippee, thank goodness it is almost Halloween and I am so happy as I have been nibbling on our Halloween candy stash for the last two weeks. I will be glad to get it out of the house. I so hope that our weather will be dry for all the little trick or treaters.

Well that's it for this week. I am of to go and make some more bath bombs. I did make such lovely ones a couple of days ago but I forgot to take pic's before I sent them to my daughter for the shop. I will try to get some pic's from her to show next week.

Have a wonderful Halloween!

I look forward to seeing those acorns. The ones I've seen made by other sellers certainly are very cute. Good luck.

I have had my eyes on the felted acorns also but do not know the first thing about felting. I can't wait to see yours. I have not seen the wool in the stores - did you find it at a yarn shop? I finally had to hide our candy - my husband is like you - he was slowly eating away the Halloween stash. He even searches the cupboard looking for hidden candy - isn't that terrible. Hope you have a great week.

I hope your little acorns were fun to make!
(I always buy Halloween candy that I would want to eat myself.... just in case *ahem*, there's any leftover. Ha!)
