How to make an apple button bag How to Make Your Apple Bag

I started by laying out my supplies and then making the outline of an apple with the buttons. Once my outline was done, I used my glue to secure them all in place.

Next I started filling my apple in with the buttons...once I got the layout I liked I started gluing those down.

Then I went back and added more buttons on top to fill in the gaps! Don't worry about layering too much, just fill them in as needed until it looks good to you.

After my apple was glued down, I then added four green buttons for the stem...

The whole project took under an hour to make and cost very little...the buttons cost under $5 and the bag was something I already had on hand and hadn't used in a while. We can't wait to fill it up with some treats and give it to my son's preschool teacher!

Hope you enjoy this easy project!
