Crochet Mini Pumpkin Earrings and Necklace
The Fall season is here and that means that Halloween is fast approaching! To celebrate this season I decided to crochet these gorgeous matching crochet mini pumpkin earrings and necklace set that will make you stand out from the crowd. These mini pumpkin earrings and necklace are so fast and easy to crochet. I may be a fast crocheter but can you believe it only took me 15 minutes to make the set. If you don’t like jewellery, these pumpkins will make a great house decoration for Halloween or a super cute applique.
This project is perfect for your yarn scraps as they are only mini and you only need two colours; orange and green. You can make the mini earrings by using a 2.5mm crochet or make a larger matching necklace by using a 3mm hook. Or you can use a smaller or larger hook depending on what you want to use the pumpkins for. The possibilities with these mini crochet pumpkins are endless.

Turning the applique into jewellery:
Attach the jump rings to the earring wire if you are making the earrings then open the jump ring and insert it into the top of the stem and close the jump ring again to attach the pumpkin to the earring wire to make mini crochet pumpkin earrings.
Attach only the jump ring to the top of the stem if you are making the necklace by opening the jump ring up, inserting it into the top of the stem, then closing it again. Now grab a necklace chain and slide the jump ring with the pumpkin through the chain to make a mini crochet pumpkin necklace.
Weave in all ends to finish the crochet pumpkin earrings.
