Autumn leaf wreath

Hi everyone Design elf Katrina here again. Sorry I have not posted for a bit but sadly we had a death in the family and so I had to organise everything along with my sister.

    Today though I have a lovely autumn leaf wreath that can lift the spirits. I love autumn, the colours are just so beautiful, so I wanted to bring them inside too.

To get the wonderful autumn colours I used the Core dinations kraft core nostalgic collection. This collection has the most gorgeous colours with a craft colour core. I think it is my favourite collection they do, at the moment!!

    So I cut out lots of leaves using the PaperArtsy oak leaves. I just chose the colours I liked and cut about 3 of each size leaf.

I then embossed them using the Tim Holtz Texture fades poker face. I used a Sakura quickie glue pen to run a line of glue around the outside of the leaf and sprinkled some of the cosmic shimmer polished glitter over the top

While that is drying I cut a doughnut shape out of box card and glued them together, i then wrapped some burlap around to cover the card 

Then all you need to do is arrange you leaves around your wreath and glue them on. You will need to use a wet glue, I used my hot glue gun. I also glued a loop of ribbon onto the back so I could hang it up.

To finish it off I added some of The Fruit Pixies wonderful buttons from the Christmas set and some toadstools, berries and ribbon from my own collection

I hope you like my autumn leaf wreath, if you would like to make one yourself you will find a shopping list in the new section in the shop called Design team projects -

Happy crafting!
           Love Katrina
