Crumpled Autumn Leaf Wreath

"A time for every season under heaven...."

Recently I visited the Arboretum to collect colorful autumn leaves for this project. It was so beautiful; reflecting the beauty of God's earth.

The leaves were scanned and transferred for cutting out. They are gorgeous! God painted the leaves in wonderful colors.

By crumpling and reopening the leaves, you add to the realism.

There are 2 parts - you make the wreath base first - and please use the most sturdy paper you can in your printer. If you have tan heavyweight paper that would be most excellent, but use whatever is sturdiest for the base.

You can choose a 9.5 inch wreath base, or an 11 inch wreath base. The smaller wreath utilizes 2 pages of leaves, while the larger wreath uses 3 pages of autumn leaves or more if you wish.

Part 2 is choosing and preparing the leaves.

Pictured left is an 11 inch wreath.
