Fall Wreath

If you are looking for today's Halloween Project, please scroll down to the first post of today. :)

The cut file for this week at Cutting Up With Class is some really cute leaves.  So, I decided to use them to make a wreath to enter into the challenge.  You can find the file and challenge here: http://www.cuttinupwithclass.blogspot.com/

For my wreath, I started out with a styrofoam wreath and wrapped it in a brown and beige mix yarn, using hot glue to attach it.  I then cut the leaves in three differnt colors of glittered cardstock (2 browns and a green) and hot glued them overlapping up one side of the wreath.  Finally, I used hot glue to attach this cute little scarecrow that I found at Hobby Lobby in their Fall Crafts area.
