Draw a 4 × 4" apple shape on your red craft paper. Cut out this apple and use it as a template to cut out 5 more red apples, 6 yellow apples, and 6 green apples (18 total).
With your brown paper, cut out 18 stems, 1 × 3" in size for each stem. Glue one end to the top of the apple. Fold the brown stem paper into a loop and glue it down on the other side of the apple. Let the glue dry completely.
Thread your yarn through the loop of each apple’s stem. You can add a drop of glue or tape to each stem to keep the apple in place on the yarn. Use the main photo as a guide.
Cut your green pipe cleaner in half to get 2 pieces. Bend and curl each pipe cleaner piece to create 2 green worms, as shown in the main photo. Place a green worm through the brown stem of one of your apples, which will hold the stem in place. Repeat with the second stem.
