How to make a Candy Apple Craft


  • Craft Sticks
  • Wooden Apple Cutouts
  • Natural Jute Twine
  • Liquid Craft Glue
  • Craft Paint in Red, Bright Green, and Light Brown
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • *Optional – Low Temperature Glue Gun and Glue Sticks


Gather all supplies. We bought our wooden apple cut outs from the Dollar Tree, but you can also find them on Amazon.

Using scissors, carefully cut the leaf and stem from the apples.

Basecoat some of the wooden apple cutouts with red craft paint (we used acrylic craft paint).

Let dry, and apply a second coat, if necessary.

Basecoat the rest of the wooden apple cutouts with bright green craft paint.

Let dry, and apply a second coat, if necessary.

Place a quarter side dollop of light brown acrylic craft and paint and liquid craft glue on a paper plate. Using an old paintbrush, mix the paint and glue together.

** Be sure to use a heavier craft glue like Aleene’s Tacky Glue rather than a thinner glue such as Elmer’s.

Apply a heavy layer of the paint and glue mixture to the bottom half of the apple with an old paintbrush.

Continue to apply a thick coat of the paint and glue mixture to the remaining apples.

Swirl the edges to resemble an apple being dipped into melted caramel.

Set aside to dry.

Flip over and attach a craft stick to the top center of the caramel apple. You can use the same liquid craft glue, or for a quicker drying craft use a glue gun and glue sticks.

Tie natural jute twine into bows and trim any long ends with scissors.

Attach the bow to the caramel apple.

Now, enjoy your faux caramel apples!
