Cover foam balls with felt to make these cute little candy apples, caramel apples and apples from the orchard. It’s a fun project for fall.
What you’ll need
- 3- 2” polystyrene (aka- “Styrofoam”) balls
- Felt: red, tan, burgundy, and green
- 2 regular craft sticks
- 1 miniature craft stick
- Brown craft paint
- White craft glue
How to make it
Put one styrofoam ball on a piece of tan, burgundy or red felt. Cut a plus-sign shape from the felt.
Glue the left and right side up onto the ball first. The ends should meet at the top of the ball. Glue the remaining two strips up the sides of the ball, tucking in any felt that may be sticking out.
For the caramel apple, insert a craft stick down the center of the tan ball. For the candy apple, insert a craft stick down the center of the burgundy ball. For the orchard apple, first paint the top half of the miniature craft stick with brown paint. When dry, insert the unpainted end of the miniature craft stick down the center of the red ball. Cut two small leaf shapes from the green felt and glue to the top of the apple near the stem.
