Here are the steps I took to make my Apple Tiered Tray
Step 1 – Load the free cutting file into your favorite cutting software. For Cricut and Silhouette I set mine to 12×12. I used the Glowforge, however, most cutters can cut thin birch or chipboard (check your cutting machine). In the video I show some options for blank ideas as well!!!
Step 2 – Cut your wood or vinyl. On the Glowforge you need to mask your wood with paper transfer tape to protect from scorching. I also put 3m adhesive tape on the back of a board and cut it so it saves time to attach items to the boards
Step 3 – Once you have your wood or vinyl cut do your weeding. For the Glowforge that means removing the mask from the wood. I found the Gorilla duct tape works amazing!!! You can also use weeding tools, pin pen, etc I also found for the letters that it was easier to remove the mask at the same time I was pulling the 3m off the back. So i did this after the signs were painted.
Step 4 – Paint your items. I use the Posca paint pens for the small items. They are quick and easy!! For the larger items I used acrylic paint.
I painted the Apple Orchard sign with Ivory Chalk paint and a baby wipe. I then stained the cutting board, the apple sign and the back of the apple garland.
For the Apples and the mask I removed the center mask first and used the baby wipe to paint that area. I then painted the solid apples with red and a baby wipe.
Then I used the paint pens to do the pie pan, seeds, leaves and stems on the apples, etc
Step 5 – Next I started to assemble. I put score marks on the wood so I knew where everything went. I then peeled the backing off on the 3m and attached it to the signs. I then attached all the letters. This is where i found it was easier to attach them to the gorilla tape, pull the 3m backing and then attach to the sign.
Paint all your letters while on the signs.
Step 6 – Let’s caramel or apples. I mixed a 1 to 1 mix of modge podge and paint. Now take your apple slice and apple the mix. You want to be thicker on this because the Corn cob needs to attach to this mix. I poured it on and then pushed it on with my finger. Set to the side to dry. Then I took the beads I painted Red and Green and applied some caramel to them
Step 7 – Finishing touches….
Apple Tag\beads – Lets take some ribbon and twine to make a tassel. Wrap them around your fingers multiple times to form a loop. Now take a long piece of twice and tie it to the top. Next take a small piece and wrap it around to form your tassel. Then cut the bottom. Now I like to use a piece of flora wire (I get mine from dollar tree) and use it a a twine thread, fold in half and put the twine in it. Thread it through a bead towards the tassel. Tie a knot and then tie a knot over the knot you made, I did this to make it a “thick” knot. Then repeat. I did 2 neutral beads, caramel bead, 2 beads, caramel, 2 beads, caramel 2 beads. Then attached my apple slice. I tied a knot. Then I tied a twine knot and attach to the knot.
Cutting board. I wrapped a piece of ribbon around the handle, then added some red twig piece I picked up at the dollar tree. Then tied a bow of the ribbon and glued that to the cutting board.
Apple sign – Super clue the little boards to the post. Push the post into the stand.
Apple Banner – I used twine strung my apples onto that.
Rolling pin – I wrapped that with a piece of ribbon to add that extra touch.
