I love Fall decor, and this one is just so fun and looks good enough to eat! Take a look at how I made these, and perhaps you can make a few yourself.

First, just pick up some fake apples from the craft store.

Remove all the stems from your faux apples, and push the wood dowels into the tops.

This how they will look...

Now pour some corn cob on a paper plate- you can find this at a pet store!

Next, lay a piece of wax paper onto your counter.

Then pour some caramel color paint into a bowl.

Add equal parts of your Mod podge using glossy luster.

Mix them very well.

It almost looks real! Yum!

Then, holding the dowel, dip the apple into the paint.

To do the sides roll them

Then dip it into the corn cob.

It’s that simple! Just let them dry on your wax paper.

Here are a few I did.

Add a bow and your ready for Fall! If there are kids around, you may want to make sure no one tries to take a bit of these. For a chocolate drizzle add brown paint using the back of your brush lettering it drip down. Same technique if what you want white chocolate.

    I love faux goodies for my primitive kitchen, however, how do you dry them without making a mess at the bottom or top?
