Apple picking season is here and will probably be going strong for a while longer.  And with the weather cooling a little bit, spending time outdoors picking apples is sounding better and better all the time!

I was able to create these adorable Apply Toppers in less than hour (I made them during my children’s rest time) so even if you are low on time, this is a great project!

How to make Apple Cupcake toppers?

Cut out green felt leaves

To make Apple Cupcake toppers from pom poms, start out by cutting two strips of green felt.  Then cut out seven different sized leaves from each of the green colors.

At the base of each leaf shape you cut, add just a small dab of hot glue and hold it together for a moment while the glue dries.  

This creates just a hint of a “leaf” shape and gives them a little dimension.

Create pom pom apples

To create the apples, hot glue the red and pink pom poms on to the top of your wooden skewers.  I liked having a few pink apples added to the mix! And using big, medium and small sized pom poms adds to their darling look.

Once the pom poms are secured to your skewer, glue each little leaf onto the top for the cutest look you’ve ever seen!

The end product are these perfect apples on wooden skewers.

I had such fun with some cupcakes having just a single apple and others having two apples.

I had similar feelings as when I made these DIY Felt Flowers… they turned out so precious I wanted to kiss them.
