Apple for the Teacher
It's September and for me, it's officially Fall. The kids will be going back to school (however that may look this year), the night air is getting crisp, and the apples are ripening in the orchards. I decided to create an apple that will stay fresh forever. Yes, you guessed it, it started with a pattern and some reclaimed wood!
I started drawing on a piece of paper and when I liked what I had, it was transferred to cardboard. This may have been a cracker box or a 12 pack of beer. Nothing goes to waste around here if I can help it!
Three pieces of wood were chosen and the pattern was traced on them with a pen.
My jigsaw made quick work of this one, so I actually cut out two apples. Here's one of them:
After a quick spray of clear coat, the apple was complete.
One thing I forgot to mention....I used some strips of wood from a yard sale to strap the apple together.
All ready for 'Back To School'!
