Some fall wreaths...

I wanted to share a few simple wreaths I made for this fall!   Every month my MOMS group gets together for a ladies night out.  This month I hosted a craft and we made this simple black burlap wreath!



I bought a 12" foam wreath and painted it black.  Then I cut strips of burlap and just tied them in knots around the wreath. 

I painted the wood letters and used a crackle finish with orange paint.

For the little bats, I actually used some Jillibean Soup corrugated banner pieces that I added wings to.  The wings are holly leaves that I cut with my Cricut on black cardstock.
You can see a whole bunch of great Halloween altered projects on the Practical Scappers blog today!

This next wreath is featured on the SEI blog today!   SEI has a die cut pack of all leaves that coordinate with their Homestead line.   I simply inked the edges and crumpled the leaves a bit and then hot glued them to a grapevine wreath.  I used a piece of burlap to hang it on my door!!!

Hi Audrey, glad I found a way to let you know that I scrapbooked one of your LOs, the one with the hexagons that you have on an earlier post here and also uploaded to the CK Gallery. Since I love quilts, I really liked that LO and found it perfect for a picture of my grandchildren. I always like to let people know when I lift one of their LOs but didn't know how to contact you until I stumbled across your beautiful blog. I am bookmarking it now so I can visit often. BTW, that LO is in my gallery at CK. My user name is GLOANN.
