Fall Wreath Blog Candy!

Tonight, in between working on swap cards (posting soon) and watching "Walking Dead" online, I made a wreath for the front door! I have a beautiful Christmas one made for my by a sweet friend, Diana Yockey, but since we were renting before we didn't often decorate for the holidays. Now we're moved in, mostly unpacked (at least if you don't peek in the garage), and a wreath seems appropriate. Since the new challenge at Heart 2 Heart was to make something Halloween or Fall themed, and the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab was so pretty, I combined the two ideas and created this wreath. Read all the way through to find out how you can win the Just Blooms leaves I used to create this wreath!

I used a big roll of Ponderosa Pine Organdy Ribbon to wrap the wreath form. Then I pinned and glued the Just Blooms leaves on the wreath (that was the watching AMC online part, lol). These leaves are retired now, but I want to make another of these for Spring using the new Just Blooms BUTTERFLIES!

Then I added a row of the big Vineyard Berry maple leaves with the new Cork Alphabet letters attached. then I made a triple layered bow using lots of green and orange (retired) ribbons and now we're ready to hang!

The Tuesday Trigger image is this neat collage of autumn colored wooden blocks. I liked the different heights of the wood blocks, which is what made me remember my stash of paper leaves tucked in the bottom of my paper flower drawer. They are precolored, accept more inks, and embossed with line detail...and unfortunately, retired. However, I still have one full tube of them left - and they can be yours! Just sign up to follow my blog via email on the side column and comment below to let me know you did (or that you already are!) to be entered into the drawing!

I will draw on October 31st and contact you for mailing info. Thanks a bunch for visiting, and see you back here tomorrow for more project fun!
