Since our Northwest summer lasted all of 3 weeks I decided I might as well give myself over to fall fancies.
Here is a wreath I created by meshing a variety of styles I have seen on Pinterest~
I began by covering a green styrofoam wreath with burlap.
I used cheap burlap for this project. I'm not sure it was such a good idea! Look at all the raveling.
I made a new-to-me flower style using a wool blend orange felt. Most crafters are talented enough to just freehand the cuts but I have to measure and mark everything.
So simple to make and I think they are adorable.
I also created these gathered and rolled roses. They are rather time intensive but I like the result.
I added a few of my more traditional rosettes and a little bit of ornamentation.
And here is my finished wreath.
Lots of textural contrast! It speaks of dried flowers and fallen foilage.
And while in the mood I brought out a few things I made in previous years~
Paper Scraps and a little stamping!
