Good afternoon!
Today I put together a Fall wreath for my daughter's teacher.
Here are the steps I took to create it:

I wrapped a 12 inch foam wreath with yarn, this took a little over an hour. 
I used my Gypsy to cut out the words Happy Fall and the turkey shape. I welded the words Happy Fall together with the shadow lettering and then used normal font for the top layer. 

ROSETTE:
turkey body: 1      x 12
                   1 1/4 x 12
                   1 1/4 x 12
                   1       x 12
Score each of the pieces at 1/2 inch. 
Attach scored pieces in the same order as above, starting with one side and attach the remaining piece to the remaining side forming a 1/2 rosette. Half a 1 inch circle punch can be glued to the front of the rosette to secure the shape, while the remaining half can be attached to the back. This process is used for all four 1/2 rosettes. After all 1/2 rosettes are finished, attach each to the turkey in  the same order as above. 

ROSETTE:
turkey tail: 4 x 12
                 3 x 12 
Score each of the pieces at once inch.
Place the 3 x 12 on top of the 4 x 12 and attach at the ends. Create 1/2 rosette to make a tail. Using a 1 inch circle, attach to the front and back of the 1/2 rosette to secure the shape. 

Attach the tail after the turkey body is finished.

Have a great weekend everyone!
