Five Apple Crafts to Make with Your Surplus Apple Harvest

dried apple heads from Be To MeI’ll tell you right now that I think these things look about as freaky as you can make a piece of fruit look, but my kids love making them, and so did my great-grandma, so there you go. If you want to make yourself a genuinely freaky piece of fruit, then check out these dried apple dolls from Be To Me, with a dried apple doll tutorial. If you want, you can craft an entire freaky humanoid body to go along with your dried apple doll head, and then you can give that doll to a child, who will hold it and gaze at you solemnly as the dried apple doll stares evilly in your direction, ready to steal your soul.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life; my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties; and my for links to articles about poverty, educational politics, and this famous cat who lives in my neighborhood.
