How to Make a Yarn Apple Garland
Begin by wrapping some yarn around two fingers.
Keep wrapping the yarn around your fingers, about 100 times. It sounds like a lot but it only takes a minute!
Carefully slip the looped yarn off your fingers and trim off the yarn end.
Tie a piece of twine (about 3 inches) around the center of the looped yarn.
Fluff out the yarn to make it a round apple shape.
Next, cut some small leaves out of green felt.
Glue a leaf to the top of the apple with some hot glue (adult supervision required).
Cut out a long piece of twine for your garland. Make it as long as you’d like.
Tie the apples onto the piece of twine.
Trim off any excess twine.
Keep adding the apples to the twine. You can use a measuring tape to evenly space them out.
Once you have added all of your apples, you are ready to hang your adorable fall garland!
Attach some to a gift bag or tie around a cute mug and give it to the teacher on the first day of school!
You can even make the garland all one color – or change up the colors and make it orange for pumpkins!
