Pineapples are such awesome fruits! Prickly yet sweet, majestic yet humble, and they are one of our favorite craft motifs. So here you are, another adorable pineapple craft project. Our take on pineapple earrings features pom poms, which make them soft, not prickly. Adorable and incredibly easy to make, this is the 30-minute project you need to craft if you want to look like one fine apple!

- Gather tools and materials.
- Make a small pom pom using 2 different shades of yellow yarn.
- Use a length of twine when tying off the pom pom, tying a double knot. This makes the pom pom hold together better when trimming it short.
- Trim the pom pom into a teardrop shape. It helps to keep the twine untrimmed to hold onto when trimming.
- Trim off the excess twine.
- Attach the chain to the looped headpin. You can also use gold jewelry wire, wrapped into a loop. Cut the chain to the desired length (our earrings are 1.75” long).
- Poke the end of the pin through the middle of the pom pom and out the top. Bend the wire with the loop barely visible, buried in the fibers.
- Wrap the straight wire around the base of the loop and trim close.
- Cut the pineapple top out of green felt using the pattern.
- Cut a small notch in the middle and run the chain through it.
- Glue the pineapple top on the pom pom, pushing it down slightly into the fibers.
- Attach the end of the chain to a hook earring.
