Wool felt and fall go together like milk and cookies in my world. It goes without saying then that our fall felt brooch is a match made in crafting heaven! Using good quality felts in mossy green, burnt orange, marsala red, purple, and a soft misty mauve, we added stitches in contrasting embroidery threads to really make this piece pop.
Built on top of a circular magnet, this DIY brooch is super easy to use. Just pop the two magnets on either side of your blouse or jacket—no awkward pins needed! It’s a wonderful afternoon craft that makes the perfect handmade gift for a friend or a loved one during the holiday season. You can also see how we used them on this host gift bottle wrap, if you need another idea for how to use it!

Not yet but a very cute idea.

I did not see a size for the beads to make the acorn?
Can you please give an idea of size I need!
.5 to .75″ makes a great size acorn 🙂
sending a big big smile 🙂 🙂 🙂
I glued a little wooden bead between acorn and its “hat” to give it a more oval shape and I painted the acorn bead with a permanent fineliner to give it a more natural Color.
I’m thinking about application on cuffs (fingerless gloves): leaves, circle or oval for the acorns, a half circle for the acorn “hat”. The leaves are applicated with a few stiches and the acorns fixed as a kind of loose hanging tassles
Wow that is such a great idea to use the design for gloves!! Send us a picture when you are finished, we would LOVE to see the result 🙂
