Some of you that follow my social media already know story behind that Halloween craft. To make story short.. I went Dollar Tree fall decor shopping … and was soo excited that didn’t notice that my apples were bitten ?… It seems someone little I assume , was really hungry while shopping ??? I was shocked at the beginning but then I thought Not a big deal. My plan then was to dip them into plaster but now before I do that I will dip them into paint to make poison forbidden apples! That bite on the apple may actually work for me. It is going to be for sur super easy Halloween diy
Let’s create those Poison or you may like to call them Forbidden apples!
Things you will need to make easy Halloween decor
- plastic apples
- spray paint
- sticks from the yard
Instructions are super easy… Spray paint couple coats and let it dry completely in between to achieve that high gloss look
As you can see I am working on couple of projects at the same time. That is what usually happens.

Easy Halloween Decor – forbidden apples
As you can see I also attached yard stick into a real apple! As we are at it ..your poison apples doesn’t have to be only for decor made out of plastic! You can use real apples that instead of paint you can dip them into a sugary syrup. I have dip my apples few times as I was making my caramelized apples. Here is my recipe that I am going for sure try closer to Halloween!
Sugar glaze for your apples
- 3 c. sugar
- 1 c. water
- 1/2 c. light corn syrup
- 1/2 tsp. oil
- few drops of black food coloring
In a saucepan over high heat, with a candy thermometer attached, heat sugar, water, and light corn syrup, stirring until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil until mixture reaches 300 degrees F. Remove from heat, and stir in 1/2 teaspoon oil and few drops of food coloring. Dip apples, one at a time, then transfer to a greased baking sheet. Let cool, about 10 minutes.
