Today's produce of choice is the KIWI. Now, in this challenge there are quite a bit of fruit that I wouldn't normally be growing in the climate zone that I live in - Zone 5b (if you're curious). However, did you know that there is a hardy variety of kiwi? It can tolerate our colder climates of the north, but are a little different. The fruit themselves are smaller than the typical kiwi you find in the grocery store and they also do not sport a furry coat. Either way, they're just as awesome! I'll let you know on flavor when the ones in my garden fruit. ;)
The kiwi pom poms were a perfect fit for today's challenge. I made up one last night just to see how it would go. I really liked the way they looked, but admittedly mine aren't quite as neat as the Mr. Printables blog. Today I decided to whip up a couple more. Originally I thought I would make key chains for a back pack or my car keys, but I didn't have any fasteners that looked very good. So, I went for the next best thing - Garland.
I made four smaller pom poms to go in between the kiwis, crocheted a long chain to fit all the pom poms, and ended the piece with a tassel on each end. I hung up my newly made home decor the way you normally would put up a garland. I didn't like it. Maybe if I had had some cute washi tape or something it would have looked better. That or I simply placed it in the wrong place. Either way, I opted to hang the garland vertically instead, right by my computer, where I can admire it!
