How sweet are these little pipe cleaner apple magnets? It took us a couple of tries to perfect them but now weve got them figured and wanted to share them with you all! In fact, we’ve got so good at making them that it only takes us a few minutes on each. My son recently Made some sweet apple and worm cards for his teachers as due to current situation he wont be going back to school this year and he wanted to make extra to gift them too. Such a sweet little idea!

Here’s what we used

Pipe cleaners

Scissors

Glue

Black Gems (optional)

Self adhesive magnets

How we made our pipe cleaner apple magnets

Take two coloured pipecleaner and twist them together at one end. For the red apple we used two red pipe cleaners and for the half apple we used one red and one white.

Take one of your loose ends and begin winding it up on itself into a circular shape.

Roll your pipecleaner all the way into a circle and then twist your loose end around the outer ring of your apple.

Take your brown piper cleaner and thread it through underneath the two outer rings. Fold it In half above your apple and then twist the two pieces together tightly so that it is secure on your apple.

Now roll one end of your green pipecleaner to create a small circle. Then, take your loose end. Wrap it around the outer ring of your leaf and pull it outwards. Pinch your circle into a leaf.
