1. Gather your American Crafts supplies. You'll also need a round foam wreath, felt and burlap cut from a fabric bolt, die cutting machine and dies or files, scissors, orange, green, and brown mists, ribbon, glitter glue, staple gun, liquid glue, and plastic gloves.

2. Cut strips of felt and burlap approximately 3.5" x the as long as the fabric allows. Cut scallops out of the felt and burlap. It doesn't have to be perfect; just eye it.

Step 2: Staple the strips to the back of the wreath and start wrapping the strips around the wreath, alternating the felt and burlap at the same time so they overlap each other.

Step 3: Cut pumpkin, pinecone, accordian flowers, and leaves from paper (I used my electronic die cutting machine to cut these files). Mist the leaves in orange, green, and brown mists and crumple them up while they are still moist. Glove are recommended. Unwrinkle them before adding them to your wreath. Mat the Give Thanks sentiment sticker on brown cardstock to give it a sturdier base. I used glitter glue to add a little sparkle to my pinecone.

Step 4: Layer all the leaves, flowers, pinecone, and sentiment to your liking. Add a ribbon and now you have a welcoming fall wreath.
