Yesterday you caught a glimpse at what was on my work table and here today we have the end result, teeny tiny acorn huts for mushrooms. I like to think that if the pine squirrels came over for a crafting night, this is what they would make.
I've hollowed out some acorn bodies and after they were cleaned and dried, glued in a wool mushroom and moss. I sewed small french knots on the caps for their spots.
They're so tiny and they fill me with glee. I am gleeful when I look at them. This one with the extra nub on the cap is my favorite.
I think the pine squirrels would approve.
Today I am ever so flattered to have been featured at re-nest, a gorgeous green home site. I was invited by the talented and charming Rikkianne to define "needle-felting" and offer a few thoughts on the process. I'd love it if you'd stop over and have a look.
Have a good day everyone.
