Transcript:How to Make an Apple Magnet
Hi, I’m Susan Harding and I'm here for About.com. Today we're learning how to make apple magnets, using instructions from About.com's Family Crafts Site. This is a super easy and fun craft to do with the kids.
For the Apple Magnet, You'll Need:
- sturdy lid from a jar
- craft foam or felt
- chenille stems
- little plastic eyes
Cut the Apple Pattern
Begin, by having your child trace a circle around the lid onto the material that will be the apple. Carefully, cut out the apple and glue it to the front of the lid. Now it’s time to make the stem, cut about an inch or two of the chenille stem and secure it onto the lid. Cut another piece of chenille stem, however long you would like your worm to be.
Now glue it onto the top, so it looks like it just had a bite of the apple and is now peeking its head out. And add one or two eyes. And we can’t forget the leaf. Using felt or foam, cut out a little leaf shape. Then glue the leaf right between the worm and stem.
Glue on Magnet
Finally, glue a magnet onto the back of the apple. And there you have it -- a cute and simple addition for your fridge.
Pom Pom Apple Magnet:
Another apple magnet that’s so easy to do – your kids may not need much help - requires a little red pompom ball, felt or craft foam, a magnet, craft glue and scissors. Cut a half inch piece of felt, foam or a chenille stem and glue it to the top of the pompom to create the stem. Now, cut out a small leaf and glue it near the stem.
Take your magnet and stick it onto the back. And that’s it. Just wait until it’s dry before sticking it onto anything.So have fun making your apple magnets, and if you’d like more information, stay here on About.com. Thanks for watching!
