One taste of the Poison Apple and the victim’s eyes will close forever in The Sleeping Death! Crafters beware… the Evil Queen’s plans for Snow White are here! Snow White’s Poison Apple is very easy to make, you just need a lot of patience! Gather your supplies, which include neon Green Puff Paint, a basket of Fake Apples, and Dishwasher Safe Quality Mod Podge. Make sure you have a week or so to complete this craft, only because the drying time is long!
Snow White Poison Apple Directions
First, use a pencil to draft the pattern onto your apple. Keep in mind that the “tooth” holes need to be a little larger than you think for the puff paint to go around them.
Second, paint around the eyes, nose, and teeth of the Snow White Poison Apple. Note that I’m only painting about 1/4 of the apple. I had to dry it on a mason jar lid to keep it from rolling around. The apple lived on a shelf for a week or two, and I painted a portion and replaced it, rotating sections.
After I made it all the way around the apple (scrubbing up and down with my puff paint as I squeezed), I did a second coat, filling in the settled lines and adding more volume. Look at how “thin” the first coat ended up! You can glob it on, which will add to the drying time, but the end result is worth it.
As a third coat, I added “stringy” lines on top that looked more drippy than the first two layers. Once again, dry fully before rotating.

Watch this video to see my process as a whole, plus some REALLY cute photos of Scarlett using the Snow White Apple Prop!
The finished product was really something. It was sealed up hard with Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge (that can take 28 days to fully cure, but is dry to the touch in about 2 hours) so it was safe to handle, and if Scarlett pretended to bite it, no paint was coming off! The Snow White Poison Apple looked really lovely in my Easter Basket lined with an old Christmas napkin and plenty of other fresh (fake) fruit!
The winning shot is this one, though… as Scarlett pretended to traipse through the leave on her way to a trunk -or- treat, trying to poison everyone. I was so proud of her out of the box costume idea as a three-year-old. She had been asking me for her “witchy dress” for over two months and was VERY happy to get into character. I just ask that if you pretend to be her Snow White, you bone up on your Disney animation lines, as she knows them by heart! Make your own poison apple as the Evil Queen (or the Old Hag…) and offer people some wishes this Halloween!
