***EXTRA blog candy from me!!! Follow my blog (let me know you did in the comments) to win some American Crafts baker's twine! So you can make a wreath of your own!***  

As you hop along with the Kraftie Kre8ations Design Team and Facebook group members, we hope you will be inspired to create your own fall project and link up using the inLinkz on the Kraftie Kre8ations blog sidebar.  Our color palette (see below) is an amazing representation of the changing colors of fall leaves.  Create ANY fall project (including Thanksgiving).  It can be a layout, card, mixed media project or an altered item. The sky is the limit!

For the occasion I created a fall wreath adorned with Cricut cuts and wrapped in twine, burlap ribbon (from The Paper Studio) and baker's twine for my craft room door. It was truly a labor of love!

I've always wanted to create a wreath like this but knew it would be time consuming. Although it's only 7 1/5" across it took FOREVER to cover in twine. It took more than 15 small spools of American Crafts twine to cover the form. To boot, I used a floral ring from the dollar tree and it was very difficult to work with. Next time I will get the styrofoam wreath (and stop playing LOL). 




The title is cut at 3.25" from the Celebrate with Flourish Cricut Cartridge using American Crafts foil cardstock, red linen cardstock (stash) and blue and brown cardstock from Bazzill.

Using the Cricut Imagine, I printed and cut the leaves and their layers from the Nursery Tails cartridge at 5.5" and added red glittered accents and yellow bling from Recollections. Instead of layering the leaves, I used the layer as a separate fern adornment for the wreath. Blue wired ribbon completed the look.

Thanks for hoppin' by! I hope to see your entry in the challenge! Your next stop is Carolyn's blog for more fall fun!
