November Wreath


The wreath base is made from old papers and covered in raffia.
The decorations on the wreath are stuff from around the yard: acorns, pine needles, straw, pine-cones and leaves

The leaves are real too, but they feel like a plastic or a light-weight vinyl. They look better in real life.
I wish they hadn’t reflected the flash so much.

I picked the leaves, laid them out on a piece of cardboard and covered them with paper towels and a heavy book. I left them for a day or two.
I painted each leaf with 3 coats of outdoor mod-podge, Allowing the leaves to dry thoroughly between coats.
After a few weeks and the glue totally cures out, the leaves don’t feel real anymore. It’s pretty neat when that happens.

Sending you all positive thoughts and warm wishes.t120002


Here’s why I’m postinging a ‘Wreath of the Month’ for every month of 2014.

  1. Thanks for the memories of what autumn is supposed to look like ~ our leaves have fallen and are covered in snow ~ sounds like a long winter lies ahead.
