Instructions:

Apples

1. Flatten tops and bottoms of foam balls by pressing against a tabletop. Cut 16, 3/4" strips of red fabric, cutting selvage to selvage. Wrap two fabric strips around each ball, gluing ends. With scissors, carefully poke a hole in top of each apple; add glue and insert a 1" cinnamon stick.

2. Fuse, wrong sides together, two 2-1/2" X 10-1/2" pieces of green print fabric. Using pattern, cut out eight leaves. Glue leaf to base of each stem.

Pineapple

3. From gold fabric, cut six 3/4" strips selvage-to-selvage and 46 3-1/4" circles. Wrap fabric strips around egg, gluing ends.

4. To make yo-yos, turn under 1/8" on edge of each circle; sew running stitch around edge and gather tightly; knot and cut thread. Glue yo-yos to egg in rows, leaving bare a 2" opening at back and a 1 -1/2" circle at top.

5. Cut two 7-1/2" x 18" pieces of green fabric. Remove backing from one side of double-faced fusing and finger press to wrong side of one fabric piece. Using patterns, trace five small and nine large leaves on paper backing; cut out. Cut 14 9" lengths of floral wire. Fuse leaves to wrong side of remaining fabric piece, sandwiching length of floral wire between leaves; wire should be positioned 1/8" from leaf tips, with excess at the stem end. Cut out leaves; trim wire stem to 1-1/2".

6. Poke 14 holes in top of pineapple with awl; glue leaf in each hole.
