12 Great Apple and Pear Crafts

Every month I like to pick a theme and then list my favourite 12 crafts for that theme. This months it’s Apples & Pears (the fruit and not the cockney rhyming slang for stairs). Past themes have include pineapples and cactus. I love them all but if I had to pick a favourite it would be the crochet apple cosies they are just look so cute.
 
12 Great Apple & Pear Crafts
 
 

1. Knitted Apple Cushion

Here is a pattern to knit this gorgeous apple cushion, this one’s green but you could always knit a red apple.

2. Fabric Pear Pin Cushion – Sweettidings

A great tutorial to make these sweet fabric pears, they could be used as a pin cushion or would just make a great decoration. There is also a tutorial for apple ones too.

3. Apple stamp tote bag -Theberry

What a simple idea – cut an apple in half to make a stamp to print on fabric. You could do the same with an unripe pear.

4. Crochet Apple Cosy – Mollie Makes

These may not be the most practical of things but who needs practical when they look so cute. If you want practical, I’m sure they help stop apples getting bruised !

11.Upcycled soda bottle apple gift box – countrywoman

I love crafts that upcycle rubbish like plastic bottles and this is a great one. These would be great for giving a little gift in, perhaps some homemade apple fudge.

12. DIY Twine Pears- Hometalk

These twine pears are easy to make using old light bulbs. You could make them in different colours using the fantastic array of Nutscene twine.

Finally I have just had an idea, you can make some page wrapped pear ornaments like the ones from Anthropologie below, by decoupaging paper from old books onto old light bulbs.
