Autumn Wall Hanging

Since my husband and I are hosting Thanksgiving this year I think I need to make my house look the part.  I have my centerpiece and I do have some other decorations, but I thought I needed a wall hanging for next to my front door.  So, I created this:
I used Folk Art Festival for all the cuts on this one.  I cut the apples at 4" using the shadow and blackout features.  I cut all the letters at 3."  The animals are all 2 1/2," except the hedgehog, which is 2."  I adhered the letters and animals with foam tape and pop-dots for added dimension.  I adhered the apples to two pieces of ribbon.  It is hung by more ribbon tied in a bow.  All the papers are from the DCWV Gilded Orchard Stack.

I made this for the challenge at Stuck On U Sketches, which is to use the word "fall" or "autumn."
