Cardboard Apple Weaving – Materials:

– Cardboard

– Apple Shape (we used this printable HERE as a guide but made it larger for our apple weaving)

– Red, green, and brown paint (we used acrylic paints)

Paint brushes

– Ruler, scissors

Ribbon, yarn, string (assorted colors)


Step 1: Draw an apple shape on cardboard (you can freehand this or use this printable as a guide and draw it larger as we did).

Step 2. Paint your cardboard apple, allow to dry completely.

Step 3. Cut grooves on the sides of the apple (we cut 8) but it depends on how large your apple is.

Step 4. Wrap string around the grooves and tape the loose strings on the back of the apple.

Step 5. Start weaving! Use bits and scraps of of string, yarn or ribbon to weave in and out through the strings attached to the apple.

When you’re done you have a cute apple weave that makes a sweet fall art decor.
