The supplies you will need for the apple crafts are:
- Juice from about 8 to 10 lemons
- 2 teaspoons of salt
- 8 to 10 large apples
- 2 teaspoons of allspice
- 8 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of cloves
- 8″ to 10″ heavy wire (for making a wreath)
- Jute (for garland or an apple stacker)
- 1 to 1 ½ yards of ribbon, or you can use fabric scraps
Now that you are prepared with all of your supplies, you can begin to make your apple crafts that will be sure to bring that home baked apple pie aroma into your household. To begin creating your apple craft, place the lemon juice into a large bowl and stir in the salt. Then you will need to peel, core and slice the apples horizontally into 1/4″ thick circles. Soak the bowl with the lemon juice for about 8 minutes. Make sure each side of the apple has a chance to absorb the lemon juice. While the apple is soaking in the lemon juice, you can mix all the spices into a bowl, making sure to blend them together. You will then want to remove the apple slices from the bowl of lemon juice and place them on paper towels. Before adding the spices you will want to dab the tops of the apple slices with the paper towel. Now you will take the spices you blended and dust the apple slices. Turn the slices over and repeat dusting. Now that you apples are fully ready for decoration you can decide which craft you would like to make.
The apple wreath will be a great decoration for the fall into the holidays and is easy to create.
Take the apple slices and fold each in half, then into quarters and thread the apple slices onto the wire. You will want to keep adding apples until the wire is filled.
The apple garland is another great option for decorating for fall and into the oncoming holidays. You will need to take the jute and cut it to your desired length. You don’t want your apple garland too long, but about 2 to 4 works great. Now begin stringing on the apple slice, pushing on end of the jute through the middle of each apple slice. You may want to alternate apple slices with pieces of ribbon or fabric. You can even use fabric leaves or other fall colors to help incorporate more autumn into your garland. Then it is ready to display on your wall.
Finally you can create an apple stacker. You will want to use approximately a 12″ piece of jute, tie one of the ends to three cinnamon sticks. Then string on apple slices by pushing the jute through the center of each slice. Also you may want to consider using fabric or ribbon in between slices. Once your apple stacker has reached your desired length, end with more cinnamon sticks, and tie with a loop for hanging.
Your home will be decorated for the fall and following holidays with these apple crafts. These crafts are easy and fun, and your home will smell amazing.
