Fall Wreath #crafts

Fall Wreath


I have wanted to start a craft section and do at least one craft per week, but that is not happening.  So I will just post as I get some crafts done.
I have been very late this year in getting my Fall decorations up.  I usually get them up before Canadian Thanksgiving but as you can tell that was last weekend and I am still working on it.  I wanted to make a wreath to put on the front door but that failed too.  I couldn't find any bigger grapevine wreaths anyway in the are and I am not sure where I put the extras I had.  Maybe I used them all.
Anyways there are only a few place I can find craft supplies ~ Walmart, Shopko and the Dollar Store.  I started at the Dollar Store and most of the material I found was from there.. So now I have a Dollar Store Craft.

What I used:

1 inch letters "FALL"
small scrap of scrapbooking paper
6 inch wreath
ribbon
leaves (felt) ~ I used 8
couple of plastic flowers
glue- I used Tacky Glue and a Glue Gun.

Directions:
I first glued the letters to the back of the scrapbook paper.  Once dried I cut them out ~ this was the hardest part.  Glue leaves to one side of the wreath.  Arrange flowers and glue to the other side.  Glue 'FALL' close to the top of the wreath.  Make a bow and attach to the bottom... And you are done.
Simple, Easy and Cheap...   This maybe cost about $2.50 total with lots left over to make more and I think it looks wonderful on my fireplace.
