Shrunken Apple Head Skulls


A fun, make ahead Halloween decoration. 

Get yourself some apples, there are plenty around this time of year! Use a knife or peeler to take off the skins. Use a knife or pumpkin carving tools to carve out a head, you will get more creative as you go, big eyes, little eyes, try small eyes and a huge mouth.

When you are finished carving coat the outside with lemon juice to slow down the browning process. Let them dry for a week or so before your halloween party. (If you need them to dry quicker, you can put them in the oven on a very low temperature. turning once in a while to help them evenly dry out.)
