An Apple for Teacher: Cardboard Tube Mini-Apples

I think these cute mini-apples would make nice gifts for someone special in your child’s life.  And while I enjoyed the crafting, they are so easy to make that toddlers can join in the fun, too. And all you need is a cardboard toilet paper tube, some paint, and chenille stems!

Materials:

  • cardboard tube
  • green or red or yellow paint
  • green chenille stem
  • brown chenille stem
  • scissors
  • hole punch

Directions:

1. Cut the cardboard tube into three circles, approximately 1/2 inch thick.

2. Punch a hole in each of the three circles.

3. Paint the three tubes either green, red, or yellow.

4. Take about 2 inches of the brown chenille stem and roll up one end of the stem.

5. Once the cardboard circles are dry, insert each one into another and line up the holes you punched in Step 2. Poke the brown chenille stem through the hole.

6. Wrap about 2-3 inches of the green chenille stem around the brown stem and fold the ends inward to form “leaves”.

Give to someone special in your life who has shared knowledge with you!

    Hi

    My children in school are not allowed to use loo/kitchen rolls – health and hygiene.. Because of this wont make anything out of card board rolls, (whether it be out of foil). Its a real shame as I love doing crafts with my kids, but school says and my kids down tools..

    Meredith..

  4. Meredith — That’s too bad! How about wrapping paper rolls? Since those aren’t used in the bathroom or kitchen?
