Whether it’s a craft project, the start of a new school year, or just for fun, kids will love making this Crinkle Paper Apple with its Popsicle Stick Worm!
Apple Craft Using Shredded Paper
Crafting with kids is one of life’s great joys. Not only do you get to make fun crafts together, but it’s also a chance to bond and have some special moments that both you and your children will remember forever.
Today we’re going to show you just how easy it can be to craft an eye-catching decoration using nothing more than crinkle paper, popsicle sticks, and a few other everyday items!
This particular project makes a very realistic apple with a peeking wormy friend in the center – so cute for any room in your home or even as part of an interactive display at school or elsewhere!
Let’s grab our materials and get started on our Crinkle Paper Apple w/Popsicle Stick Worm project! Happy crafting, my friends!

This crinkle paper apple craft is a great way to teach kids about the fall season while also keeping them entertained as well!
- Sandwich Baggie
- Shredded Crinkle Paper
- Wooden Scoop Stick
- Black Marker
- Green Cardstock Paper
- Brown Cardstock Paper
- First things first – stuff the baggie with your crinkle paper. Just a handful inside the bag until it’s full. Don’t seal it just yet though.
- Now grab your wooden scoop stick and the black Sharpie marker.
- Decorate the scoop stick to make it look like a worm. I added eyes, a mouth and a few squiggles on his body.
- When done decorating the scoop stick, place the “worm” inside the stuffed baggie.
- Now seal off your baggie at the top.
- Set it aside.
- Grab all your cardstock and scissors.
- Cut out a stem from the brown and leaf from the green.
- Finally – to finish off the Plastic Baggie and Crinkle Paper Apple craft, staple your paper pieces to the top of your stuffed baggie.
- Then display for ALL to see!
Make it your own – although I used RED crinkle paper for mine, GREEN OR YELLOW would be great too, especially since these colors are easier to find before, during and after the Easter season! Think of this as motivation to recycle the grass from your child’s Easter basket!
