How to Make Cinnamon Apple Wreath


  • 1IMPORTANT: You will also need 1 Straw wreath, 10 inches in diameter
  • 2Heat oven to 200°F
  • 3Cut apples lengthwise from stem end through core into 1/4-inch slices.
  • 4Dip apples into lemon juice to prevent browning; place on wire racks. Carefully place wire racks on oven rack.
  • 5Bake 4 hours.

    Remove wire racks from oven and place on heatproof surface.
  • 6Let apples stand about 2 hours or until completely dry.
  • 7Place dried apples on waxed paper.

    Coat each side with 2 light coats of spray varnish, following manufacturer's directions.
  • 8Tie 10-inch cinnamon sticks together.

    Attach to front of wreath with 6 inches of the ribbon.
  • 9Glue dried apple slices and 3 1/2-inch cinnamon sticks to front and side of wreath, using glue gun.
  • 10Attach leaves to ribbon on 10-inch cinnamon sticks.
  • 11Make a bow with the remaining ribbon, and attach to wreath.

    Attach wire hanger if desired.
  • 12Tips:
  • 13Make the dried apples ahead of time. When it's time to make the wreath it will all come together in a snap.
  • 14Pick up Rome apples for this project. With their pretty red skin and white flesh they are particularly nice in this wreath, though other types of apples are also attractive.
