Fall Wreath with Art Philosophy Flowers - done just in time!

Ever have one of those projects that you work on for 5 minutes here and there and wind up taking you a month to complete?  This is a very simple wreath project that I started over a month ago - kept picking it up and putting it down so instead of a hour or two to complete it took me a month - eek!  The good news is I FINALLY finished it in time for Thanksgiving and I'm happy with how it turned out!


Close up of the flowers.  The larger mums were cut at full page size (about 10.5") and the smaller roses were cut at 5.5" each (4 per page).  The flower centers are all three colors and both sizes of our Shimmer Brads - they are such a great value at $4.95 for 27!  Love the Bronze Glitz on the kraft colored leaves! 

If you'd like to make this wreath, get these supplies:

Paper:  Light Yellow and Orange Shade Pack (has Buttercup, Creme Brulee and Sunset papers), Kraft Cardstock, Colonial White Cardstock (I backed the kraft leaves with this as it was too floppy on its own)
Inks:  Creme Brulee and Sunset
Other:  Art Philosophy Cartridge, Shimmer Brads, Bronze Glitz, Ribbon (about 5-6 yards of 2.5" - I found this gorgeous one at Costco), small styrofoam wreath base (Michaels)

Paige - that is absolutely GORGEOUS!!! I have a few foam wreaths I bought but don't want to cover the entire things in flowers like I originally planned. I love this idea instead. Thanks for the inspiration!
