Things to Make Thursday! Apple Stationery

Apple Stationery

As we come into fall, I start searching different areas for things to do with kids that involve what makes autumn, autumn....apples :) For "Things to Make Thursday!" I found this crisp, fall craft on :)

Cut a round apple in half, then poke out its seeds with a toothpick and set them aside. Blot the cut surface with a paper towel until it's dry. Brush white acrylic paint all over the cut surface, then add a line of red or green paint around the edge. If the stem is attached, brush brown paint on it. Stamp the apple on a folded piece of card stock. To print the seeds, spear one with a pin, then dip it in brown paint and stamp it where desired.

A great addition to a teacher's gift for open house :)
