It's apple week! Today we are going to make a red burlap apple for my front door. It would be cute in my classroom too...
I just found red burlap at Joann's for $4 a yard. I bought some white too. I painted it with white polka dots... and painted 2 green leaves on the white. I cut out 2 large apple shapes. Burlap sheds a lot... be prepared for a little bit of a mess!
Next I zig zagged around the edge of the apple shape. I left a hole in the side and stuffed it with plastic shopping bags.
Next I cut a hole in the back and stuck a stick in the hole for the stem. I hot glued both leaves on the top and added a little loop for the back.
The possibilities for these are endless... I'm thinking of making a big candy corn one next! Have a wonderful day!
