Felted Fun

I recently was inspired by this and this and this. So I went out and collected some acorn tops that the squirrels had left behind after hiding their winter stash.
And last night I made a few acorns in pretty fall colors while watching Dancing With the Stars on TV. And then THIS happened. . . . . .

The moral of this story is . . . DO NOT try crafting things that require using a hot glue gun while watching television!

Arent they sweet and fun to make? I made a bunch when I got back from the country living fair in Ohio after seeing them in the earth angels tent! I glass glittered the top part and made necklaces out of some. and I tied a few others around a new fall bear I made. nice booboo you got there.. I know how that feels!

Your acorns are so cute, love them. I am sorry about your finger, I burned two fingers last night on a hot pan, it's awful. But I kept crafting, and putting ice on it. Hope it's better soon.

Yeah right I agree. Always be careful when you are using the hot glue gun. One mistake of using it will really hurt you.
