A Dunedin artist’s Christmas creations have already gone viral.
Emma Hogg has crafted "Covid balls", which she says make the perfect quirky decoration for a car or tree this Christmas.
Ms Hogg said her partner pointed out the graphic when it was first shown during lockdown and said she should replicate it.
"I thought I would give it a go.
"I found a scientific drawing [of Covid-19] and went from there ... I’m quite pleased with how they have turned out."
She crocheted the decorations, made out of wool and stuffed with cotton, while at home with her two young children.
"I was focused on fine art but since having kids I’ve turned to other things."
"I’ve made about 35 or 40 now."
She said she thought the balls were "a bit of fun to mark a hard year".
The balls were being sold for $20 to $25 at Dunedin shop Urban Crafters and online, she said.
"If people keep buying them I’ll keep making them."
