|Step 1. Gather your supplies.|
To make an apple, cut one Red Fuzzy Stick in half. Wind the Fuzzy Stick around your finger to create a spiral shape. Continue twisting the stick until it starts to form a 3-dimensional apple shape.
Leave a small piece of the red stick at the top to add the stem. Cut a 1 inch piece of Green Fuzzy Stick and wrap around the stem to create leaves for the apple.
|Step 4. |
Wrap a green Fuzzy Stick around the neck of a jar of honey and twist to secure. (We used a honey-bear jar). Leave a piece sticking out to attach a hang tag.
Cut a piece of card stock to fit over the label of your jar. Write a message using a marker.
To create a hang-tag, fold a small piece of white card stock in half and punch a hole in the top corner. To decorate, dab your finger in red paint and make a finger print on the card-stock! This will create a round apple shape. Add leaves on the apple using a small paintbrush.
Glue the sweet new year label onto the front of the bear jar and attach the hang tag on the green Fuzzy Stick added in Step 4.
|Step 8. |
To continue with your honey theme, you can make a bumble bee to add on your jar. To start, wrap a Black Fuzzy Stick around a Yellow Pom to create the stripes and cut the stick when done.
Cut a 1 inch piece of a Shimmer Stick then fold the ends in to create the wings. Glue to the top of your bee.
Using craft glue, add Wiggly Eyes to the bee.
|Step 11. |
Glue the bee to the honey jar.
Tip: You may need the help of an adult and a hot glue gun to attach this element as craft glue might not stick to the plastic.
|Step 12. |
If you are decorating a jar that has a large label, use the finger print apple technique shown in Step 6 to decorate the label.
