Autumn Wreath

We're not quite in autumn yet but those soft colours are beginning to creep into the landscape and leaves.  For this project, I've used a Tim Holtz die called Tattered Leaves but you can hand cut your own shapes.  Fold a piece of card in half and draw half a leaf shape with the fold as the centre of the leaf.  Cut and voila!  Colour the edges of the leaves and roll the edges round a paint brush to make them curl in a leafy way.  Cut out a circle from strong card and get your glue gun going.  Add any embellishments you happened to have, raffia would have made a perfect bow on this but I couldn't find mine.
 The video shows you how to make those berry like clusters as well as the whole wreath.  Hang it somewhere you can enjoy it as the nights lengthen.
