Cross Stitch Apple
This Cross Stitch Apple craft is an ideal project for Rosh Hashana and fall. Additionally it recycles a styrofoam tray that would otherwise go into the landfill.
Styrofoam tray that did not touch raw fish or meat
Large dull point yarn needle
Draw your design on the back of your tray.
Using your yarn needle, or the needle you'll use, poke holes on the lines of your drawing. In the photo above I hadn't yet poked the holes for the cross stitches as I was still trying to figure out that part, and eventually went with a really loose cross stitch look.
Embroider your design using the holes you've punched, really fun and simple! I love how the cross stitches used to shade the stem and side of apple turned out, so give that a try too!
