Once Upon A Time.....

Hi My Friends!

Once Upon a time, in a faraway kingdom, there lived a little girl who had a stepmother who was WICKED.....and gave her a POISON apple.....Ok, so maybe that isn't exactly how it goes, but,you've all heard the story of Snow White...right? I love Walt Disney! I especially love the "older" ones.  Last year, I bought some fake apples at the dollar store and dressed them up with some fun stickers , one  said,"POISON" (it was red of course, I gave this one to my cute Mom...her favorite Princess is Snow White..I just had to! )and I kept the  one that said,"WICKED".

What you need:

- Fake apple (I don't know the exact name for it)
- Stickers/Vinyl
- Ribbon
- Glue Gun (optional)
- Peat Moss
- Jewels (optional)

I got the apples at the dollar store. The stickers I got at Hobby Lobby. The ribbon, I got from Walmart.
First wash your apple...JUST KIDDING!
Get your apple, and apply the stickers to spell out poison or wicked. Get the ribbon and cut three 2-3" pieces. Tie each ribbon around the stem of the apple separately so that you can adjust them in different directions. Once you get them how you want them. you can use a dab of the glue to keep them there.  I use a little on the ribbon on the stem so they still looked "flow-y".  Use the peat moss to nestle the apple in and you can just sit it on the counter top or put it in a cheese dome..then you are SO DONE! 

My kind of project...easy,cute,and cheap....and with stuff leftover for other projects!  Love it! 

AHHHH...Love it when something turns out exactly the way I envisioned it!

{I'm sorry I don't have a pic of my Mom's, on hers I did it the same way, I hot glued some tiny crystals to the ribbon.)

So  perfect for  Halloween time decor!  Have a great day!
