Here’s What You Need

Here’s your easy apple craft supply list (This post contains affiliate links to the products mentioned. Read my disclosure policy for more information):

Step 1: Download and Print the Free Apple Template

The apple craft PDF makes it easy to cut out the apple shapes.

Step 2: Cut Out the Apple Craft Shapes

Print the free templates. You will be stapling them to colored paper and cutting out as many shapes as you need.

Tip: If you’re making the green apple craft, it’s best to have two different colors of green paper.

print the apple templates and staple them to multiple sheets of paper before cutting. Notice the two different colored green paper for the leaves.

If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.

Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Tip: While you’re cutting, if you cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left.

Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!

Step 3: How to Assemble

The kids will just need to glue it all together and make it their own!
