Fall Leaf Wreath with Beth

Hello, this is Beth from Beth's Beauties and I am back with another design team project.  If you haven't seen the latest sets that Jessica has created, you are missing out!  They are gorgeous!  I combined the last two, Autumn Splendor and Winter Wishes with Thankful Captions to make this project.
From the Winter Wishes set, I made the wreath stand and the background of the wreath at the imported size.  The wreath stand is made with dark brown cardstock and has yellow and green rumpled ribbon wrapped around the base.  The background layer of the wreath was cut with kraft cardstock twice and glued together for additional support since I knew I was going to be layering on all kinds of pretties :)
The leaves and their stems were cut from the Autumn Splendor set.  The green leaves were cut at 7", the red and yellow leaves were cut at 6" and the brown and orange leaves at 5".  They are all distressed with brown chalk.
 I didn't want to cover up those beautiful leaves too much so I opted to add a banner in the center of the wreath.  I simply cut a piece of cardstock 2.75" tall by 11'' wide and rolled each end in the opposite direction.  The sentiment is from the Thankful Captions set.  It was cut at 2.25".
The embellishment on the banner was a bow of green rumpled ribbon, trendy twine and buttons that matched the leaf colors.  All of the patterned paper was from DCWV's Amber Autumn stack.

  1. Cute idea. I like using the stand for this fall wreath and then to use it again for Christmas. Thanks for getting me thinking.

    1. That was what I hope to do as well! I made it out of a dark brown so hopefully it will match for Christmas too.
