Spring is here and it’s a great time to celebrate the season of new beginnings with some apple crafts. Here are some great ideas to try with the kids.

Apple Tree Hats

The kids will get a kick out of wearing apple tree hats to kick off spring. They make fun crafts for doing together at home, or in the classroom. You will need :


  1. Cut out the pieces of the template.
  2. Glue the tree trunk to center of a rectangle headband, then glue the treetop to its trunk.
  3. Glue the apples on, using paper apples, buttons or pom poms.
  4. Cut lines along the wavy edge towards the center to make the headband piece look like grass.
  5. Glue the grass onto front of the headband under the tree, adding some fallen apples if desired.
  6. Reinforce your tree with a craft stick taped to the back.
  7. Stapling the back headband piece, attach it onto the front headband piece, measuring your head for the best fit.

Apple Suncatchers

Let in the warm sunlight of spring with this apple suncatcher that captures the cheeriness of the season.

You will need:

  • One chenille stem per apple
  • Faceted plastic beads
  • Cookie sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • Wire cutters and scissors
  • Fishing line


  1. String one chenille stem with beads.
  2. On one end of the stem, string three green beads for the stem, bending the stem into an apple shape.
  3. Twist then tuck the ends of the stems into one another to secure the apple shape.
  4. Place the apple on a parchment-lined cookie sheet, filling the entire shape with loose beads.
  5. Put the cookie sheet into a cold oven, setting it to 350º. Once it has reached that temperature, set the timer at 10 minutes.
  6. The beads will then be fused together.
  7. Turn off the oven so the cookie sheet can cool inside the oven.
  8. Once cool, string some fishing line through each suncatcher and hang in a window.
