Cardboard Yarn Apples

Hi there! It’s Megan from Homemade Ginger and I’m sharing a fall craft with you all today. For some reason, apples and back to school go hand in hand. This cute little craft is great for preschool age kids, but would work for older kids too. It’s a fun activity to get everyone in the mood for fall and you probably already have most of the materials on hand!

Does anyone else love apples? We have always loved them around our house. After trying many different varieties, we now have our absolute favorites. The two best types of apples (in my humble opinion) are Pink Lady and Honeycrisp. We usually are a Pink Lady family just because they are a little more inexpensive and readily available. But, when Honeycrisp season is upon us and they are on sale, you’d better believe that I am stocking up!

This craft might not taste as delicious as a Honeycrisp, in fact, you probably shouldn’t be tasting it at all! But, it’s so simple and these cardboard apples always turn out adorable. They would be so sweet attached to a teacher gift. You could even glue a magnet on the back and stick it on the fridge! It’s a great activity for both little and big kids alike!

I was inspired by these yarn apples but I wanted to add some more details like the twigs and leaves. I love how they turned out!
