- Age Guideline: 3 Years and Up
- Time Required: 20 minutes (Does not include drying time)
The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.
- Red Pom-pom (1- to 2-inches)
- Pony Bead
- Craft Foam, Felt, or Construction Paper
- Ribbon or Yarn
- Craft Glue
Put a dab of glue on the side of the bead, do not cover or block the holes. Stick the bed onto the pom-pom. The bead will be the apple's stem. Cut out two small leaf shapes from the green felt, craft foam, or construction paper. Glue them on either side of the bead near the holes, but don't cover the holes.
Once all the glue has dried, you can string the bead onto a piece of ribbon or yarn and you have your very own apple necklace. If you like, you can cut facial features out of felt, craft foam, or construction paper and glue them onto the pom-pom to make a smiling apple. You can also cut a small piece of yarn or chenille stem and glue it to the side of the apple so it looks like a worm.
