Fall Wreath Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to “Fall in love with Autumn” blog hop.

Featuring a fall wreath collection:
Let me just start with how much I heart fall {sigh}.  Leave’s turning gorgeous shades of orange, red and brown.  The sweet aroma’s of hot cocoa and apple cider coming out of the kitchen. Anything to do with fall fashions, boots, sweaters and pretty scarves!  Oh, I can go on and on!  Well with that being said I have a treat for all of you today I have a group of talented ladies that can’t wait to share with you their fall wreath that they created for this gorgeous season.  We hope to inspire you and “fall in love with autumn”!  Enjoy! J

So, come along and hop with us to see all the beautiful fall wreaths there are in this hop. I am soooo excited and cannot wait to see them all.

I will be giving away this as blog candy: 

You must do the following to be eligible to receive my blog candy. And don't forget to be eligible for the gift card you must follow each blog and leave a comment. In other words...share some love!!

      1. Become a follower of my blog.
      2. Leave a comment and answer the following question:     
                             What is your favorite thing about fall?

So here is my wreath project:

Step 1: Gather supplies: material of your choice, styrofoam wreath, hot glue gun, buttons, 
             and straight pins. (some supplies not pictured)   


Step 2: Cut material in about 2" strips...this was not an exact science...I did not measure. 
            Wrap around the wreath form and either hot glue or pin. (if you want to be able to 
             use the form again)  


Step 3: Decide on other colors of your material and cut varying lengths for the strips...
            fold the strips in half and roll around, twisting and turning into a spiral. 


Step 4: Hot glue the buttons in the center of the spiral flower. Then, pin or hot glue in place.

Step 5: Cut out "Welcome". Please forgive me, I did not measure it or note the cartridge
            I used on my gypsy. You can even leave this step out if you wish. 




Final Product


Please forgive me for not taking better step by       step pictures. I promise to do better next time I do a project like this.

Very pretty project. I love the ribbon design.

Tanya said...

Great wreath. I like the idea of rolling the strips of fabric. Think I will use that sometime. :)

Tanya said...

BTW, I Love..... too many things to name one... um, I really have an appreciation of the changing colors outside. I grew up in ND and then for the last ten years, lived further south where there is no "fall" season. Definitely miss the changing colors.
