Altered Project: Fall is in the Air Wreath


After watching snowflakes fly yesterday, I'm more inclined to say winter, rather than fall, is in the air. Inside my house it feels and looks like fall though, especially with the addition of this new wreath.

My hubby put his mad woodworking (and painting) skills to work, cutting each of the petals and assembling them onto a frame. He created the burlap center, using a scrap left over from this burlap monogram project.

Want to take a closer look? Here are some close ups...

The Bo Bunny flowers are leftovers from this layout.



The "fall" diecut is from Little Yellow Bicycle's Feels Like Home collection, also a leftover from a previous project. Are you sensing a leftovers theme here? :)

I also used a bunch of buttons to cover the gap between the burlap and wood. Can't say I put a big dent in my stash, but some.



A bit of layering going on behind the flowers.



Thanks for stopping by today! I'll be back tomorrow with a new layout.
Pin It!
