I believe my Grandmother used Granny Smith apples, but you can experiment
to see what kind works best for you.
Peel the apple and push a wire all the way through from the bottom and make
a hook for***. If you set the apple on a surface, it will mold.mark
face into 3 sections: forehead, midface, chin. Look at a person's profile to
get a basic idea of *** structure. carve away from the nose area, dig
holes for eyes and place glass eyeballs or rhinestones in. The apple will
shrink to at least half it's size, so don't use overly large beads for
eyes.cut deep grooves from nostrils to outter corners of mouth so the face
will look like an older person.
you can add ears if you want, or cut pieces from another apple for that an
pin in place. Cut hands from an second apple as well.
Hang all to dry in a warm dry area. Coat with spray varnish when dry. Takes
