My jigsaw had been sitting in the closet for way too long, so I figured it was time to dust it off and make another project for my seasonal shelf.

I started by cutting an apple shape out of wood.  For painting, I used the same technique as this project, but I antiqued them a little. I painted the base coat (1 part white and 1 part colored paint).

Then, I added my vinyl stencil
and painted over it with my top color.
After the paint dried, I removed the vinyl
and gave it a light sanding.
I used some antiquing glaze (like in this project) and sanded one more time.
To finish it off, I drilled a hole in the top, added a small branch, and tied it off with some green fabric.

I made two more and glued them all together.

I just love how they turned out!
