You can technically “wing it” with the shape – if comes out great even if it’s not perfect! But if you want it to be exact, I’d recommend printing out a pattern. You can find a pattern for a simple paper globe from Heather Bailey (look in the right sidebar underneath where it says “free patterns” and choose the Paper Globes.)

I had these in mind to hang in my Sukkah – though they’re perfect for any party or just to celebrate autumn. If you want a neater and less elaborate look, you can use solid reds instead of the various prints.

I hung one of these DIY apple paper globes on baker’s twine and then the second on jute twine. I definitely like the jute better – even though the whole feel of the apple isn’t rustic like that, it works with this as it’s reminiscent of the stem of the apple.

As you can see, I left simple “tails” hanging from the apples – you don’t need to do that but it’s fun! And you can even string a few wooden beads on the end to make it even more fun.
