Okay dear readers, I have to admit that I just love my little pineapple embroidered on a recycled styrofoam tray, that actually held some precious passion fruit! Who can resist a tray that is this color and shape? Certainly not me, and with pineapples being all the rage at the moment, well this little project seems just perfect right about now! And best of all, you can whip it up quite quickly on account of the large stitches and easy to draw motif. Pair it with my geometric string stars embroidered on styrofoam trays, and you've got some great decorations to hang in the succah or anywhere that could use a little dose of creativity. Shall we get started?
- recycled styrofoam trays
- embroidery thread and a large needle
- a felt pen
- Draw your design on the back of the tray. I'm using my Jerusalem scene here to illustrate the idea.
- Follow the lines of the drawing and poke evenly spaced holes along the lines.
- Now go ahead and embroider your design by using the holes to bring the embroidery thread up through each hole, down through the next, up through the next and then down through the previous hole. Got it?
