Every Chrismas, I do an ornament exchange with my mom, one of my sisters and three of my aunts. I usually end up making lots of extra ornaments to also give to various other family members. Two years ago I needle-felted birds and the year before I sewed birds (last year I bought little wooden birdhouse ornaments on Etsy). This year, to keep things simple, I broke from the bird theme and made felted acorns.
In two separate sessions, I wet-felted a whole lotta balls, with some help from E and Z, and then glued on acorn caps and gold thread hangers.
Hopefully everyone likes them and doesn't think I cheaped out.
