Hi Friends! I'm so excited about this little craft project that I just completed! I saw this post over at Thrifty Decor Chick and thought, I can totally do that!!!
All you need is a piece of foam board and some fall leaves from the Dollar Tree and a red crayon if you don't have any spray paint like me. That's it!!! Now I did a few different things to mine, like just cutting the foam board out with a knife and scissors, I think Thrifty Decor Chick used a jigsaw (I don't own one of those). And she spray painted her square and I just colored mine, worked fine.
I did measure a 20 x 20 piece and then went four inches on each side and cut the middle out. And her leaves were different than mine, I couldn't find those nifty little packets that she was talking about so I just went with the basic leave bunches, you know that you could add to a vase or something like that. And just plucked them off the stems and ended up with two leaves per bunch.
I bought 5 bunches and just organized the leaves all around with a hot glue gun and 30 minutes later.................TA-DA!!! I really like the way it turned out! I'm actually giving it to a girlfriend of mine because she's been looking for a fall wreath for a couple weeks now.
So for a total of 7 dollars (5 for the leaves and 2 for the foam board) you too can have a shabby fall wreath that will work right through Thanksgiving!
And this is a very random little tid-bit but I cleaned out my junk drawer in the kitchen. Everyone's got one right? Our got out of control so I pulled everything out and reorganized it, but I don't feel like you can really tell a big difference. I think I need to get those little bins from Target that organize things for you?? The after is the first one! : )
