Yippee, I have managed to squeeze out one last recycling craft for you before the end of the Jewish year — introducing recycled plastic cup apples! Maybe just in time to whip up to grace your Rosh HaShana table, or as a fun idea for making succah decorations. These little reycled plastic cup apples don't open, for that idea I'd recommend my recycled soda bottle apple gift boxes.
- reycled plastic cups with six sides (2 cups per apple) these are mini dessert cups that we used for pudding for a birthday party
- decorative tape
- tissue paper
- colored paper or felt for leaves
- a glue gun
The tops of my cups were scalloped, so I carefully cut off the scalloped edges to form straight edges. Fill one cup with crumpled tissue paper, place the second cup on top of the first, and simply tape together with decorative tape. Affix stem ( a real stick) and paper leaf with hot glue, and voila a super cute eco conscience apple is born! Enjoy!
