Fun and easy to make
They take about 2 weeks to shrivel up completely, but when they're finished I think they look cool!

  • Step 1

    Peel your apple and carefully push it into a pencil or paintbrush.

  • Step 2

    Sculpt features into the apple such as eyes, nose, mouth etc. The more bizarre your design looks, the better it will look when finished.

  • Step 3

    Add extra bits of detail if you wish. I used black peppercorns inside the eyes and grains of rice for teeth.

  • Step 4

    Leave your finished apple somewhere warm (I left mine on the kitchen windowsill)

  • Step 5

    After about a week, the apple will be shrivelled up on the outside, but still soft and squidgy on the inside.

  • Step 6

    And after two weeks it should be completely finished.

If you're pressed for time, you can make the shrinking faster by baking the apples, too!!
