hi :) It's Emilia here :)
I'm coming with a lovely Autumn project for 14 Craft Bar
It is a simple wreath created out of die cut leaves and few embellishments.
I have a few step by step photos to show you how you can create similar project :)
I started with die cutting Lady E Design Leaves 003 out of green and brown papers.
Next I have inked the edges of the leaves with green and brown ink.
Then I sprayed all leaves with water and squashed them in between my fingers to
make them look more natural.
After I had leave ready, out of cardboard I created wreath base, I'm sure you can buy these bases
but I didn't have anything like that at home so had to make it.
I didn't worry to much about imperfection as I covered the whole ring with green florist tape.
I attached the twine to the ring and I was ready to start sticking on the leaves.
I didn't have any technique for that :) but I started with the darkest leaves.
First I was sticking on the whole branches, then I cut them into smaller pieces.
To finish the wreath I added few embellishments I had in my stash :)
Little red & orange berries, white and orange pumpkins.
To add more texture I cut cheesecloth into smaller pieces and inked it,
then stick underneath each pumpkin.
Some time ago I had a short video how to make the pumpkins out of air dry clay :
The last piece to add was red little bow :)
I enjoyed creating the wreath and I hope I could inspire you to create your own :)
