Fancy This: Summer's End Autumn Wreath

LeahFarquharsonFramed

 

With autumn fast approaching, I thought it would be really fun to create a sweet leaf wreath for our home! We don't live in an area where the leaves fall, so this is as close as I'll get! I love the soft, sweet colors of the Summer's End collection! I'll enjoy every minute of this autumn season with this reminder to be thankful every day!

Start by cutting the pieces you'll need:

• 2 diecut flowers to layer in the bottom right corner.

After die-cutting your leaves, emboss the solid ones and add accent stitching to the patterned ones. Chalk around the edges and to highlight the embossing. Fold them up the middle to add some dimension.

Using a hot glue gun, begin attaching the leaves around the edge of your circle base. Only apply glue at the very base of the leaves, to allow them to stand up a bit. Continue until the wreath base is full.

Begin layering embellishments in the bottom right corner.Starting with the glitter cut flourish and brown doily diecut. Then layer over the chipboard element, diecut flower with button, and filter flower with button center. Add other chipboard pieces, buttons and glittercuts around.

Poke a hole in the "so very thankful" glittercut wordart, and thread fine twine or embroidery floss through. Attach to the back of the wreath base in the center.

Cut a 20" length of the twill ribbon from the trim card, and attach to the back to use as a hanger.
