How to Make an Apple Wreath
Of all the wreaths I have made over the years, my favorite ones tend to be those that use a nontraditional supply – from cupcake wrappers, to wine corks, to corn husks – I’ve tried them all! However this faux apple wreath I made for Oriental Trading may just top the list of the most random material I’ve used yet. These apples could totally pass as the real deal from afar, but a closer inspection will reveal that they are actually foam stress balls. Yep, stress balls! You can craft while relieving stress. 😉
My latest video shows just how easy this apple wreath is to make. Stick a toothpick into the bottom of the apple. Then poke it into a foam wreath with a little hot glue – easy peasy! I have been making several craft videos with my friend Heather this year. We’ve been having a lot of fun learning the ropes, and are getting a little better with each one. It takes us about an hour to shoot what ends up being a 40 second video. We’ve also been experimenting with new transitions and techniques like the bouncing apples in the middle of this video.
I’ve seen real apple wreaths like this one that look absolutely gorgeous and perfect for fall, however they are temporary and a waste of good apples! I love that this wreath can be reused year after year. I also think the mix of red and green apples and the sprigs of eucalyptus make it extra chic.
