I have an itsy bitsy, teeny weeny yellow crochet project for you all today! This is actually my second Crochet Pineapple pattern, but this one is so mini and cute, and I just extra love it.
I used my tiny crochet pineapples to make earrings and a pin, but they have loads of potential for other projects, don’t you think? I’m thinking hair clips, note cards – so many possibilities!

What do you think? Too crazy? They are a little on the wild side, but I think they are pretty cute. The little upside down tassels are my favorite.

Make Tassel Tops
The tops of the pineapples are just tiny upside down tassels! Love them! And – bonus – they are super easy to make.
Start by wrapping the green embroidery floss around three of your fingers 9 times. Clip off a piece of embroidery floss about 4 inches long, thread it through the loop and tie a double knot on top. Cut the loop open on the bottom. Snip off another length of thread – about six inches long. Wrap it several times around the tassel about a quarter inch below the double knot at the top. Secure it with a double knot, and clip off the excess.
Finally, trim the tassel to the length you want. My tassels were only about three quarters of an inch long when finished.
Stiffen Crochet Pineapple Bases (optional)
To make your pin or earrings to be a bit more sturdy, you can use fabric stiffener. All you need to do is pour a little bit out on a piece of plastic wrap and dip the back of the pineapple bases in the fabric stiffener. I chose to just do the back side of the base because I wanted the crochet fabric to retain it’s look and texture as much as possible.
Attach Tassel Tops to Crochet Pineapple Bases
Using your crochet hook, pull the strings at the top of the tassel through to the back of the pineapple base. Tie in place, trim ends, and secure tassel in place with a dot of hot glue.
And, ta-da! Crochet pineapples!
Glue on Earring Posts or Tie Tacks
The last step is to simply glue the earring posts or tie tack to the back of your crochet pineapple or pineapples. Hot glue works great for this. I glued the posts to the base of the tassels for the earrings, and I glued the tie tack a bit lower for the pin.
All that’s left to do is wear your fun new crochet pineapple accessories!
What do you think? Would you rock the pin or the earrings?
