This apple craft is easy to do and so much fun. For younger kids, you can help by cutting the tissue paper squares to get them started. All the kids, whether big or small, will have a blast dipping the tissue squares into glue and smooshing them onto the paper plate.

And while we specifically created the craft to celebrate fall, it also makes a fun teacher appreciation gift since we know apples are a traditional gift for teachers! (We suggest making it an extra-nice gift by taping a gift card on the back!)

If making apples as a classroom project, create a tree trunk out of brown construction paper and tape to the bottom of the wall. Add circles of green construction paper to the top of the trunk as leaves (or if you’re ambitious cut out leaf shapes.) Then decorate the top of the trunk with all of the apples to create your own student apple tree!

How to Make the Tissue Paper Apple:

1. Punch a hole in the top of your paper plate, slide a green pipe cleaner through. Twist and wrap the pipe cleaner around your pinky finger to create spirals.
2. Squeeze a little glue onto an extra paper plate.
3. Cut the tissue paper into lots of 2×2″ squares (or around that size, they don’t need to be perfect!)
4. Wrap one tissue paper square at a time around the eraser tip of the pencil.
5. Dab the bottom of the square in glue.
6. Press your pencil (with tissue attached) onto the apple paper plate.
7. Repeat steps 4-6 until the plate is filled with tissue.
8. Let your apple dry, and display proudly, because come on – How cute are these?!?!?
