Directions for Popsicle Stick Apple Craft
1. After gathering supplies, print the Apple of My Eye template. Use scissors or a paper cutter to cut out the rectangles.
2. Line up 6 wide craft sticks, then glue 2 standard-sized craft sticks on top of them. This will be the back of the popsicle stick apple.
3. Flip the apple over, then paint the front of it red (green or yellow would work well too). Use the scissors to cut a small piece of wide craft stick, then paint it brown.
4. When the paint is dry, glue the brown popsicle stick to the back of the apple to make a stem.
5. Use the scissors to cut out a green felt leaf. Glue it to the back of the popsicle stick apple.
6. Last, glue or tape the photograph and the words to the front of the apple.
7. If desired, press magnets to the back of the painted popsicle stick apple so that it can be hung on the refrigerator.
