Holding onto summer sweetness

I came across Cathe Holden's website today and found a tutorial for these simple summer cherries.  The woman is amazing and is so creative.  I didn't have any beads, modge podge, or green paper with type so I had to improvise.



I used some red wool and needle felted some balls and used some wool felt to make some leaves.  Not bad for a quick little project to decorate some empty jam jars.  I have quite a few of these jars so I think I will try and make a different type of berry for each of them and see how they turn out.

  7. This is so cute. I wish I knew how to make jams and preserves. I'd bottle them up in this cute little jar with your cherry embellishment. Super adorable!!
