I've been seeing so many beautiful handmade Autumn wreaths so I decided to try one myself. I bought a round styrofoam ring at The Dollar Tree, wrapped it in some burlap and hot glued it down. Then I used a Leaf Template to print the leaves on brown paper and book paper, spritzing the bookpage ones with Chalkboard mist. I made some felt spiral flowers (tried to show you how below) and added some pearl beads to them. For the acorns, I used my Fiskars acorn punch and leftover scraps from The Scrapping Spot's October kit. The metal butterfly is also from that kit. Had some burlap trim from an etsy shop (Frog Feathers) and used it to hang the wreath. Voilá, in about an hour I now have a new fall decoration for my door!
