Put those little thumbs to good use with this adorable Bushel of Thumbprint Apples Craft! With overflowing baskets of red and green thumbprint apples, this makes such a sweet fall craft keepsake.
I’m so ready for the fall season. It is my favorite, I love everything about it. The changing trees, the falling leaves, the temperature change, the scents, and the tastes of fall, as well. All of it. I also love apples and apple picking time.
To go with my favorite season, we have some more really cute fall crafts you should check out, too. Ideas like our Handprint Crow Craft, Craft Stick Scarecrow Craft, Coffee Filter Watercolor Owl, and this Paper Bag Fall Tree Craft, plus so many more.
For our Bushel of Thumbprint Apples Craft you will need cardstock in brown and we used light blue for the base, red and green acrylic paint, brown and green markers, scissors, and a glue stick.
Use Your Thumbprint to Make a Bushel of Apples
- Cardstock – brown, light blue
- Acrylic paint – red, green
- Markers – brown, green
- Glue stick
Begin by gathering your base card. We used light blue cardstock cards that were about 5×5”.
Now, cut an upside down trapezoid from the brown cardstock to fit inside the base cardstock.
Draw weave lines with the brown marker.
Glue to the bottom center of the base card.
Next, pour red and green paint. Use your thumbprint to start making red apples.
And green apples, too. Make a few that have fallen out of the overflowing basket, as well. Let dry.
Then use the brown and green markers to draw simple lines for stems and leaves.
How cute are those?! We’re so happy with how this fall craft turned out! Of course, the littler the thumb the littler the thumbprint apples. So you’ll just be able to make more!
