Apple sign

I made this sign for my sister - I was watching her place and animals while she was away and found a shingle on her property. Since she watched out place and our cat this week I wanted to make her a thank you gift.

That got me thinking that I wanted to create a sign for her using the shingle I found. She loves the apple theme so I mimicked a sign I saw in a store.

I painted the background with Apple Barrel paints. I cut the letters and apples from A child Year Cricut cartridge and Mod Podge them on.
Let it dry and Mod Podge all over it again.
Did some sponging to look old. Sorry for the picture quality - I had my sister send me a pic from her phone as I did not take a pic of it beforehand.
This is one place she hung it above another sign she has already in her kitchen.
