September 24, 2011 Fall Wreath (first wreath)

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
It is a nice sunny day here is North Houston.
I finally made my first wreath! I think I may make seasonal ones that I can change....we will see. :0)

First, for laughs....I bouht a raffia wreath at Michael's. I should have taken a picture of it for a "What not to do" blog spot.:P I accidentally cut the plastic part that held it together. It was quite a sight. This morning I went back to Michael's to get a "much sturdier" wreath. lol is what I used to make it:
cardstock: (old) SU and DCWV (Green Stack)
bag ties: the kind that come with the favor treat bags
wreath: Michael's
Cartridges: Simply Charmed (scarecrow girl and boy, wording)
                   Everyday Paper Dolls (bushel, apples, leaves, and acorn)
                    Create a Critter (pumpkin)
Glitter: MS
scoreboard: MS
border punches: MS and Fiskars

I ran the leaves and acorn thru the xyron to make the fronts sticky.....then added the MS glitter.
I wrapped  the bag ties in the area I wanted the shape (rosette). I then used the hot glue gun to adhere the rosette to the bag tie. I am "hoping" I can just snip the bag tie off later and switch out the rosettes later.:)
If you have any questions, please leave me a message.:0)
Have a great weekend everyone!!!
