- 6 petioles from leaves or thin twigs;
- sticky eyes;
- 1-2 toothpicks.
Ant Apples Craft Step by Step
At the first stage, you can make the head of an insect. Glue the eyes to the apple with adhesive. If you want to stick to everything natural, instead of artificial preparations, you can use small hard berries, stick seasoning with cloves, sunflower seeds.
The nose of our ant will be from a grape. You need to tear it off with a long petiole, with the help of which the grapes are attached to the apple. For convenience, you can first mark a puncture with a toothpick, and then place the petiole there. Stick two long leaf stalks into the top of the head to display the antennae of the ant.
Using toothpicks, connect two apples together, thus attaching a body to the head.
At the last stage, stick a few petioles on the sides to make paws. You can replace them with thin branches.
Everything, the ant apples is ready.
