Fall wreath

Ok I know that I already said this but I seriously am so exited that it is almost fall. Only 3 more days! We are already noticing changes in our night time weather. Love it!!  Oh and I made the first soup of the season last night. Lentil soup. So good! I am totally dying to get out our Halloween decorations and I am pretty sure I will start decorating next Friday.  Halloween is such a big holiday for us. Sometimes we plan a year in advance what we are going to dress up as.Yea we are that serious about it!
   So I needed to create a fall wreath for this season. I had one last year made out of corn husks but wasn't completely happy with how it turned out. I really have been thinking about this all year. Trying to come up with a fall wreath that I would love. It took a wreath that I already had in my living room to inspire it!

The leaves were cut out of construction paper. I used about 6-8 papers for each color. I also folded the paper in thirds and got 6 leaves out of one sheet. I than folded each leaf.

    I than hot glued the leaves horizontally and stacked the leaves counter clock wise.

     The twig wreath was the best form to use so that I could thread the fabric through the twigs to hang the wreath.

     My original inspiration. This book page wreath in my living room.

  Total random but one day I will have a real mantel!
