It’s apple picking time! It’s also apple crafting time. The change of seasons is slowly drifting through the air, signalling the start of everything autumn, including all things apple.
Apple and pumpkins. It doesn’t get much more autumn than that.
Over the weekend, I thought up this great Apple Paper Plate Lacing Craft activity for my daughter. I just so happened to have a big ball of red yarn that I needed to use up, and this was the perfect project. Simply punch holes all around the plate and lace your red yarn through. The more yarn you string through, the more filled in it will look. Then glue on a stem and you have a fun fall apple!
- paper plate
- hole punch
- red yarn
- brown and green paper
Punch holes all around the outside of your paper plate. Try to make them as evenly spaced as possible, though don’t worry about being exact.
Take a long piece of red yarn and begin lacing through. Lace through in a pattern, in multiple patterns, or in no rhyme or reason. We started off trying to make it all symmetrical, but ended up lacing through holes at random. Tie ends of yarn in a simple knot on back.
Once your apple is complete, cut a rectangle of brown paper and a leaf shape out of green paper. Glue together, then glue on the back of the plate.
Looks so good, you could almost take a bite!
