Apple Roses

I saw these wonderful little roses made from apple slices in an Amish shop this October in Lancaster, PA. I dry apple slices for my potpourri so thought I would try my hand at this. I had made 2 baskets for one of my craft shows - I scented the apples in one with an apple cinnamon oil and the other with a rose scented oil. I thought they turned out rather cute. The roses I saw in the Amish shop however were single roses - they might have been pins - after gluing the apple slices and forming them into the rose floral shape - the base was pretty thick - so I am not sure what they used - wire perhaps, wrapped in floral tape - but I had a difficult time trying to do that - so instead made baskets with them.
