Meg of “MegaCrafty” has been seeing tons of projects for felted acorns again this year.  Today she is showing us an easy way to make the felted balls you need for these projects. And it’s great to do with kids. They love the “magic” that happens during the felting process and this technique contains the soapy water mess.  I could not wait and tried her method this morning.  The first two times I used way too much water and my dish soap is very sudsy and I kept dumping and rinsing the soap out.  “My efforts are pictured above”.  The last two I made I used very little water and soap and it worked well.  One of the balls I mixed the black and orange and then I cut it in half with a scissor.  Be sure to follow Meg’s instructions and you will have success.  Thanks Meg for the fun tutorial.

    so that is really cool, but what do you do with them after you make them? not very inventive, but love simple crafts that i can make.
