This is one of my favorite crafts that I have done every year in the month of September for YEARS.
Seriously, if you have been following me since the beginning (God bless you for sticking with me), I shared a photo of Happy Buddy’s version of this craft that he did when he was 2-years-old. 2-years-old, people! Where has the time gone?! See it HERE.
But I have always wanted to share a step-by-step photo tutorial of how to actually make these beauties, so one of my preschoolers let me take pictures of her project for me to share here!
- Cardstock paper in red, green, and brown
- Contact paper
- Tissue paper squares in red, yellow, and green
Step 1 – Cut an apple shape from the red paper (see photo above).
Step 2 – Cut a piece of contact paper the size of the apple.
Step 3 – Peel the back off of the contact paper and place the paper apple on the sticky side of the contact paper.
Step 4 – Cut out a stem and a leaf. Add to the top of the apple.
Step 5 – Add lots of tissue paper squares.
Step 6 – Trim the edges and hang in a window!
They truly are stunning. My heart is happy whenever I walk into our classroom!
I hope you will be able to make one of these in time for Johnny Appleseed’s birthday on Saturday.
Happy Apple Stained Glass Window Craft-ing!
I love, love, love your blog. You are such an inspiration. Your love of the Lord and the way you share it with others is such a blessing. Thank you for all your delightful posts
love it! Thanks for sharing. I want to make this with my granddaughter but make it a pumpkin…..
That looks like a lot of fun! My little one has a cold today and I was wondering what to do to pass the time. Perfect! Thank you.
All those apples in the window look so cheerful!
