Winter in New York can be pretty tough. The squirrels are very aware of that. By this time of year, all that is left of the Fall acorns are just the caps. What a great opportunity to create from nature! I had a bit of wool roving available and decided to use this opportunity to add a bit of color to my home with Wool Felted Acorns!
I found an oak tree and then just checked out the ground. Seems that squirrels munch out, then just toss the cap aside. They apparently are not crafters. Of course, if you cannot find them locally, you can always purchase the caps from your local craft store!
This post also includes more unique Nature Craft Ideas that you can only find on the Sitcom! So be sure to keep reading for lots of inspiration!
