1. Print out the pattern and transfer the markings on to the wood. The basket and the sign need to be cut out of the 18 mm wood and the 7 apples out of the 6 mm wood.
2. Saw all of the pieces out and sandpaper the pieces smooth.
3. Paint the basket and sign brown and the apples red with green.
4. Let all of the pieces dry. Drybrush shading and highlights on all of the pieces. For the apples use brown and yellow and for the brown pieces use black.
5. Drill the holes in the appropriate pieces according to the pattern. Drill a hole in only 2 of the apples.
6. Glue the remaining apples onto the basket using the picture as a reference. Use the wire to attach the remaining 2 apples onto the basket.
