Even the youngest picker can make this aptly apple-y sack to use on the next excursion to the local orchard.

What you'll need

  • Fabric bag (cloth grocery sacks work well)
  • Newspaper
  • Fabric paint (green, red and brown)
  • Paintbrush
  • Apple

How to make it

  1. Fold over some newspaper and insert it into the fabric bag, laying it flat so that the paint will not seep through. With a brush, use brown paint to fashion a tree trunk and let dry.

  2. Then use a horizontally cut apple to make leaves by brushing a thin layer of green fabric paint onto the apple and pressing it around the top of the trunk. Repeat several times (make sure to look for the star in the print).

  3. After the green paint dries, cut an apple in half vertically. Pick the side that still has the stem and brush with red fabric paint. Then "hang" juicy apples on the tree.
