Felt Acorns

There is a lot of acorn themed things around this year, which is so incredibly ironic to me. It is ironic for my family because acorn was the placeholder name for my youngest nephew born at the beginning of October. My sister and BIL went back and forth on names and although they had kind of decided, they didn't really tell any of us for sure. The joke kind of formed that they would just name him "ACORN." So it is working out fabulously that there is literally acorn stuff EVERYWHERE even with Christmas items. We are having a blast with it.

This being said, I began following a site called, The Gunny Sack and one day while stalking her old posts, found this super easy tutorial for making felt acorns and I decided I would make some holiday color themed ones for my sister to hang at her house. And that I did. Now, today I am just posting the acorns themselves, becaused I haven't quite made it to making the full banner project but they are awesome and just so cute that I had to share. So, BOOM.

 Just storing in an awesome mason jar until I am ready to make the rest of the project. Some are a little pudgy because of all the stuffing, but I think they are just plain old cute!!

 Aren't they so cute?? I had so much fun taking pictures of them in the jar, yes this makes me super dorky, but whatev. I have no problem admitting this.

This is my favorite- roll away little acorns :) But not too far, I still have a project for you!!  Check back later this week to see what these acorns turned into.

I did cut out some more circles to make additional red and green acorns so I might save the extras for myself, can you blame me??
