Artichokes are as pretty to look at as they are delicious to eat, so it is only natural that some people would be interested in learning how to mimic their scaly form for decor; the Instant Artichokes project is just what they have been waiting for. A fun do-it-yourself craft that can be done in time for holiday hosting, it requires styrofoam balls, scrap fabric, some straight pins and, of course, a bit of patience.
Created by Atlanta-based freelance artist and jewelry maker Kristina Ackerman of Knuckle Salad, the Instant Artichokes easily fit into any home because people have full control over color and pattern. Not to mention that the Instant Artichokes are better than fake apples and pears.
