Humpday Tutorial | Shrunken Apple Heads!

What a fun DIY for a Halloween party!  I’ve seen this in another magazine before and they used black charcoal or marker to fill in the facial features for an even more eerie look.  You can find the complete tutorial with additional pictures here.  This probably isn’t a project to work on with the kids because of the knife carving, but it’s a great nap time project for you!  That Martha Stewart team is really something, huh?  Enjoy!

What you’ll need:

  • Paring knife
  • Firm, unbruised apples
  • Lemon juice
  • Salt
  • Small bowl
  • Knotted cord or twine
  • Toothpicks
  • Optional: Urn or vase filled with dried branches

    That is such a cute idea for a Halloween party or just to hang up in your house for the kids to enjoy. It’s such a creative tree.
