Painted and Stamped Apple Pie Craft

Get in the mood for autumn with a sweet-smelling apple pie craft. Although it involves several different techniques- cutting, painting, stamping, and stapling- each step is easy and the whole project comes together quickly. The hardest part is waiting for the paint to dry!

 This craft was inspired by The Apple Pie Tree. Learn more about the book and see even more Apple Pie activities here.

Painted and Stamped Apple Pie Craft


  • Paint – We used red for apple stamping and
    mixed brown and white to paint the crust
  • Paintbrush
  • Apple – cut in half
  • Containers for paint
  • 2 paper plates
  • Stapler
  • Cinnamon
  • Scissors


  1. Cut a triangle shape from one of the paper plates to resemble a slice of pie cut from the circle.

  3. Paint the bottom of the paper plate with the missing piece.

  5. Slice the apple in half. Put red paint in a container with a flat bottom and one half of the apple in the paint. Stamp the apple on the top of the second paper plate. Repeat, filling the plate with apple stamps.

This is sooo cool!! Thanks for sharing!! We are going to do this sometime this fall!


Oh I love this! We did an apple unit recently, and we made apple pies. I wish I would have seen this before we did it! I'm pinning this to my apple board to do next time we study apples. Thanks for linking up to The Sunday Showcase.

This is such a cute craft! I am not a great pie maker. This looks like one I could make with my son.

LOVE LOVE this craft!! It's so festive for Fall and the Apple Pie book is one of my favorites this time of year. We made a pumpkin pie last year out of one paper plate and sprinkled pumpkin spice on it. I just shared this on my Facebook page.


Thank you for all the wonderful comments! I am so glad you like this and hope you enjoy making a pie with your young readers. I can gaurentee that these are MUCH easier to make than a real apple pie!
