DIY: Poison Apples

EN

Why hello long-time-no-DIY from me! It's been awhile since my last one and I am happy that I have finally come up with something new today. I know Halloween is still a month+ or so but preparation is key to a successful festivity right?

For this years Halloween I have come up with crochet apples. Poison crochet apples to be specific like the one Snow White and they are fluffy with bold and daring colors. Please dare to crochet them!

Hoi, sorry voor de lange afwezigheid van mijn DIY's. Mijn laatste DIY was ergens in juli alweer en ben daarom heel blij om een nieuwe DIY aan jullie te presenteren vandaag. Halloween begint pas over een maand+ en iedereen weet dat goede voorbereiding pré is. Begin lekker vroeg dus!

Dit keer heb ik gehaakte appels voor jullie in petto. Giftig gehaakte appels om specifiek te zijn, net als uit `t verhaal van Sneeuwwitje! Deze appels zijn heerlijk pluizig met felle en gedurfde kleuren. Probeer ze alstublieft uit!

Pull the tails through the apple and to the bottom and tuck it lightly to create a slight dent on top.
Make a crisscross at the bottom for secure
Fill the apple with polyester/toy filling before closing it up. Attach the poison bit by sewing the tail along the edge of the apple.
Have an apple my dear
