How to make a 3D paper apple easily (step-by-step photo tutorial)

Creating paper versions of objects we come across in life is not only fun, but also opens up new way of thinking for kids.

When we want to replicate daily life objects, be it food, animals, or nature – it requires kids to put some thought into how they can do it.

It helps them to develop thinking skills and by practicing doing arts and craft activities, their hand-eye co-ordination also improves.

Even if they do crafts by learning from tutorials, it helps them to get used to the idea of making things and eventually can create things on their own when left to their imagination.

Here, we are making a paper apple step-by-step using construction paper. So, let’s move onto the tutorial.

Now, what we are going to do is, stack each semi-circle on top of each other and stick them together. We will do it one-by-one.

As shown in pic 14, we need to stick one end of each semi-circle with each other. So let’s start.

11. Take a semi-circle piece and apply glue on one side.

12. Similarly, take another semi-circle piece and apply glue on one side.

13. Stick them together.

14. Press for a few seconds to make sure the pieces are stuck properly.

16. Stick it to the end of the second semi-circle piece we made earlier in step 14.

17. The completed shape will look like this.

18-20. Repeat the steps until you stick all the nine semi-circle pieces together end-to-end.

Next, in the same way, stick the yellow semi-circle piece in the end and complete the circle.

21-22. Apply glue to both sides of the yellow semi-circle piece and stick both ends to red semi-circle pieces on the right and left sides to complete the circle.

23. Make sure all pieces are stuck properly.

24. Using a marker pen, draw some apple seeds.

25. Now, close the figure as shown in pic 25. At this stage, the paper apple is more in a circular shape, so we are going to shape it like an apple to make it look more realistic.

26. Draw an apple’s outline as seen in pic 26.

27-28. Cut along the outline.

29. Cut a small rectangular piece of paper. This is to make the stem of apple.

30-31. If you have black or brown paper, you can use that. Or else, color the piece of paper using a black coloured pen or marker.

32. Roll it thinly.

35. Make sure it is inserted well.
