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 and our Apple Paper Plate Lacing Craft!
Apples 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 a sturdy paper 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!
Apple Paper Plate Lacing Craft
- 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 the holes.
Lace the yarn 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.
When finished, tie the end of the yarn in a simple knot on back or tape to secure.
Once your apple is complete, cut a rectangle of brown paper for the stem as well as a leaf shape out of green paper. Glue the paper stem and leaf together, then glue on the back of the plate.
Looks so good, you could almost take a bite! Be sure to check out all of our fall kid craft ideas at Our Kid Things!
