Wrap light bulbs wrapped in twine.what a nice way to recycle burnt out bulbs and they make beautiful pears! Actually didn't use lightbulbs, I had some wooden fruit: banana, pear, orange. Turned out beautiful!
Can do the same thing with a piece of fleece. With some clever, yet simple needle work, a little stuffing, and a pom-pom, you can take a simple knit/crochet square and turn it into a cute little bunny.
