Gather your supplies. The apple is foam on the inside but paper on the outside. I chose silver thumb tacks.
Start by putting one thumb tack in the center of the bottom. Gradually work your way up in rings around the fruit. Try to make it as even as possible.
It doesn't always have to be a perfect ring around the fruit. The important thing is that they overlap!
When you get to the curve at the top, don't overcrowd the space with thumb tacks.
Finished product! You can do it in other colors of thumb tacks too!
