Use glue to attached the apple outline to the wax paper. Use scissors to cut around the edge of the apple outline to remove the extra waxed paper. Depending on how big you made your apple outline you may have enough painted waxed paper to create more than one apple suncatcher.

Cut out a stem and leaf from brown and green construction paper. Glue them to the top of your apple. Attach the suncatcher to your window using tape or double side tape.
