Wreath Made From Dried Apples

What you need

Dried apple pieces
Cane wreath or embroidery hoop
Craft glue
Spray varnish
Ribbons
Dried flowers



Instructions

Start by taking your dried apple pieces and laying them out onto your work space. You can make your own dried apple in either a dehydrator machine or simply slicing them and rubbing them in salt and lemon juice. Leave them outside to dry for around a week.

Spray each piece of apple with varnish to help preserve it. Make sure you do it on both sides of each apple slice.

Take your hoop and layer the apples onto it, securing each one with craft glue and overlapping the next slice and securing with glue. Repeat this process until the hole hoop is covered. Using dried flowers glue them into the wreath at random locations. You can use these flowers to hide any broken edges of gaps.

Take a large Christmas ribbon and tie it around the top into a loop.

If you hoop doesn’t already have a wire hanger then using some craft wire twist one into the back of the wreath at the top. Make sure it is in the middle or your wreath will droop.

Hang it on your door, inside or out.
