Remember this post here when I wanted to make an apple door hanger for my summer bucket list? Well, I finally did it! Here is what you need:
-About 3/4 yard of burlap ($3.99 at JoAnns or Hobby Lobby)
-Arylic Paint (2-3 small containers for the main color)
-Ribbon or Wire to hang it
-Recycled Wal-mart bags
Let me start by saying that I purchased red burlap thinking for a red apple it would be easier. Well...not so much. It was SUPER hard to get the green of the leaf and the white polka dots to get back to the right color, but live and learn, right?
First I freehanded the apple and cut it out.
Next I began painting my polka dots. I used the round sponges on a stick to do this...made it MUCH easier than freehanding it!I also added a little accent on the leaf and stem.
Hot glue the front and back together, leaving a gap to stuff.
Stuff it with recycled Wal-mart bags. You needed something to do with those anyway, right?
Hot glue ribbon or wire hanger on back. ** A lot of these are shown with the wire at the top. I didn't want mine to hang that low on the door so I hot glued it about 1/3 way down the back of the apple. Didn't get a picture..sorry!
Here is my finished product! I'm pretty happy with it! I want to hang it on my front door...hubby thinks maybe not! :) He doesn't get it!
If I get to hang the apple on my front door at home, I purchased the burlap and paint to create this for my classroom door!
