Wow! I can't believe that our summer vacation has come to a close and my kiddos head back to school tomorrow! While I have thoroughly enjoyed spending these last 2 months with them 24/7 I must admit that I am looking forward to them going back to school, getting back into a regular routine again and having a house that stays clean for a few hours each day!!!
Plus I always look forward to the fall season because I love the coziness of the time of year and anything related to pumpkins just makes me smile! (especially pumpkin pie! :))
Speaking of the fall season, I decided a while back when I first had a glimpse of the Harvest Lane collection that I wanted to create something for my home. So when I pulled out my papers and embellishments last week I thought of creating a wreath for my front door. I know many of you have created one of these darling projects before but I haven't created one yet so I thought I'd give it a go.
I decided that I would make my wreath using accordian styled flowers. I cut 2 different widths of paper (1" x 12" and 1 1/2" x 12"). I scored lines every 1/4" all across the strip of paper and then began folding each piece accordian style.
Then I adhered a punched circle shape overtop (actualy the bottom of my flower). I added another punched circle shape, some scalloped circles, some with different sized circles doubled up onto the top/fronts of each flower shape. I embellished the tops with buttons & decorative brads.
After creating all the flowers I adhered them to a circle that I cut from cardstock. This can be any size you wish depending on how ambitious you are with all those accordian flowers. (my finished wreath measures approx. 11 1/2" x 11 1/2")
Here's a look at my finished wreath that will grace my front door this fall season.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you've been inspired by my little creation.
