  • Step 1:To make the apples, cut two pieces of red ribbon to 3-3/4 inches long. Cut two pieces of green ribbon to 3-3/4 inches long. Cut four pieces of white ribbon to 3 inches long. Cut four pieces of white ribbon to 2-1/4 inches long. Heat seal all the ends.
  • Step 2:Take each piece of ribbon and form a circle. Overlap one end 1/4 inch over the other and glue.
  • Step 3:Place a dab of glue on one side of a 3 inch white circle at the seam and glue to the inside of the red circle at the seam. Glue one 2-1/4 inch white circle inside of the larger white circle at the seam. Repeat these steps to make all four sides of the apples.
  • Step 4:Take the two sides of the red apple and glue together in the center at the seams. Repeat this step with the green apple.
  • Step 5:To make the apple seeds, cut four pieces of black ribbon to 3-1/2 inches long. Tie each piece of ribbon into a knot and trim the ends to 1/4 inch from the knot. Pull each end over the knot and glue down. Glue the apple seeds to the inside of the smallest circles, near the center.
  • Step 6:To make the leaves, cut two pieces of green ribbon to 2-1/4 inches long. Heat seal the ends. Take one piece of ribbon, fold over and glue the back side of one end to the top side of the other end. Repeat for the other leaf.
  • Step 7:To make the stems, cut two pieces of brown ribbon to 2 inches long. Heat seal the ends. Fold in half and glue together.
  • Step 8:Glue the stem and leaf together and then glue to top of apple.
  • Step 9:Glue a pin to the back of each apple.
