I started with a straw wreath that I got for $.99 at Goodwill at their Saturday half price sale. Score! Seriously, shop there for anything crafty. I think it's where all abandoned craft supplies go to die.
addition of recent rodents roaming our yard!
Here's how I made the flowers:
Find an old book (or buy one at a thrift store or garage sale) and cut out lots of circles. If you have a punch, it'll make it easier, but just wing it and cut out a bunch of free hand circles. They don't have to be perfect, and you'll need various sizes.
50 points to the person who can tell me which book I cut apart. And don't worry - I have multiple copies of this book. I love it! I should've used The 19th Wife. I don't love that one. Also, I didn't realize until I posted this picture that this particular petal has the word Christmas on it. Odd for a fall wreath, don't you think? Imperfect is my middle name.
Happy wreath making!
