Needle Felted Acorn Necklace
Here are a few items I created yesterday using some of the acorn caps from all those dried acorns I’ve been showing you. I love needle felting in the fall so I decided to needle felt some acorns. Once I had the acorn felted I decided to accent each acorn cap with a slight amount of metallic gold paint. It’s just enough to give the cap a slight shimmer. To make the hanger so it can hang from a necklace I first drilled a small hole in the top of the dried acorn cap, then wire wrapped a hanger and attached the cap to the needle felted acorn. The acorn pendant hangs from a 24″ silver ball chain and looks adorable.
I had so much fun making the first felted acorn I decided to make 9 more in different colors. These are listed in my Etsy shop if you would like one of your own. I think these are not only adorable as pendants on a necklace but would also look super cute as ornaments on a fall tree.
