Terrific Crayon Apples

 Make some wonderful apples to hang in your window.

Craft Project Directions:
To make this project you will need wax paper, red and green construction paper, an iron, scissors,crayons, glue, and a crayon sharpener.

Take a piece of colored construction paper and fold it in half.

Draw an apple pattern with a stem and cut it out so you have two identical apple shapes.

Cut out the center of the apple leaving about 3/4 inch border around the outside. This border will frame your apple. Now take the piece of wax paper and fold it in half.

Using the apple pattern you already have draw an apple shape that is about 1/2 inch large all the way.

Separate the wax paper apples and cover one with crayon shavings- use a crayon and a crayon sharpener to make these. Place the wax apple half with the crayon on a towel and place the other wax apple over it so the shapes match up and iron them together so the crayon melts.

 Now take your apple frame and attach one half to each side of the wax paper apple you created so the frame pieces match up. Now punch a hole in the top, add a piece of ribbon or string and hang someplace special.

Enjoy Crafting!
