Little Acorn People Visit Ten Gables

Hi Everyone and Welcome to Ten Gables cottage,
The little acorn people have come for a visit, too, bringing the things they like best, berries, lichen, and woodsy things of all kinds! Actually some of them have little wooden bead heads and others have acorn heads! I made them last year after finding an instruction book at Michael's. They were fun to make and a little tedious. Their bodies are made of pipe stems wrapped with embroidery thread. Maybe if you click on this photo, you can see close up how they are made.
You can find artificial acorns at Walmart that work well for the heads, as the pipe cleaners just stick into them. Or beads work well because they already have a hole to stick the pipe cleaner body in. This is a good project to do with your children and grandchildren. The clothes are made of felt and glued on.
