When the frame is dry, turn it over and tape the string to the back of the chalkboard to make a hanger.
Paint the leaf yellow with a brown stem.
Paint the apple red with a green leaf.
When all of the pieces are dry, glue the apple and leaf onto the wooden frame.
Write "Happy Autumn!" on the chalkboard with the chalk.
Hang up and enjoy!
