Puffy Tissue Paper Apple Craft
Many of you will remember making puffy tissue paper crafts when you were a child. They are fun and can be adjusted for younger ones too. If your child has trouble with the “pencil method,” they can skip the pencil and just wad up the tissue paper in their fingers. With fall and back to school, this apple craft will be loads of fun!
To make this apple craft you will need:
- 1 paper plate
- Red and gold tissue paper
- 6 medium light green pom-poms
- 2 small googly eyes
- Tools: scissors, white craft glue, pencil with an eraser
Using the photos as a guide, trim the bottom off of the paper plate and cut a curved triangle out of the top. Cut the triangle in half, then turn that sideways. Take one of the pieces and use it as the apple stem, gluing it to the back.
Cut or tear tissue paper into squares. Apply glue to a small section of the paper plate. Place pencil eraser in the center of a tissue paper square and wrap it around the pencil eraser. Press the paper into the glue and remove the pencil, leaving the tissue paper in the glue.
Cover the entire paper plate with red tissue paper. Use gold tissue paper to do the stem.
To make the worm, add two googly eyes to one of the pom-poms. Glue all the pom-poms to the apple.
