After seeing Kim's and Tracy's adorable acorns, I knew that we had to make some. Of course, I didn't want to buy the felted balls. I decided we should make them, so I put my kids to work. Last week after school one day I had them roll the wool into balls. Easy enough. Then as Martha suggested, we dipped them into warm, soapy water. The directions then tell you to pass them back in forth in your hands for about 10 minutes. The kids lasted about 2 minutes. I lasted about 3 minutes. I am sure there is an easier way to do this. However, I couldn't figure it out. Maybe Sabrina knows since she made a bunch for her beautiful bobble bag.
Next time, I think I would buy the balls. I think ours just look like balls of yarn with acorn tops. But, I guess there is nothing wrong with that.
