Here's a fun little golden apple craft project for Rosh HaShana that you could hang on a neighbor's door, or even on the door knobs around your home. And I think these apple placards would make great New Year's cards, since then the recipient could use it as a decoration, even in their succah! This my friends is the last in a little craft series for the New Year using gold cardboard, and my attempt to give you all some simple projects that you could still easily pull off (with help from the family?) in the next two weeks. Right?
- double sided gold cardboard, or make your own by adhering two lighter weight sheets of gold metallic paper to one another if you can't find the cardboard I used (Israeli readers: the size is just a bit bigger than A4 and I bought it in my local art supply store, so I hope you'll be able to find it easily!)
- hemp string, you know, from the hardware store!
- wooden beads
- a hole punch
- a metallic paint pen (I used a regular metallic gel pen, but it smears too easily, so go with something permanent)
How To: Cut out your apple, mine is about the size of half of an A4 sheet of paper, and punch holes around the perimeter. String your hemp through the holes and add a few beads for fun. If you'd like write a message on the front. thought truthfully this looks great plain too!
