Do you enjoy adding homemade touches to your seasonal or home decor? Greet your guests as they arrive to your home for Thanksgiving dinner this year with a beautiful Fall wreath hanging on your front door. Or try hanging it across a mirror or mantle.
You will need a package of Fall Leaf Die Cut Shapes (34115) by American Crafts, an old dictionary, a wreath form, and your hot glue gun. Let’s get creating!
I purchased an old dictionary at my local donation center for just a few dollars. I used a pair of scissors to cut several simple leaf shapes out of the book pages.
Next, I used a glue gun to add the leaves to a grapevine wreath form. First, I lightly rolled/folded the Fall Leaf Die Cut Shapes into a cone and adhered them to the wreath form, making sure I distributed the colors evenly. Then, I filled in the spaces in between the colorful leaves with the neutral bookpaper leaves.
I used my electronic die cutting machine to cut several branch shapes from 12×12 Chocolate Textured Cardstock (71047) and adhered them here-and-there around the wreath to add a bit of variety.
The final step was to top my creation off with a burlap ribbon bow. I love the way it turned out! I will be hanging this in my hallway across the front of a mirror for a bit of fall flair!

Happy Fall, friends! The minute the weather turns cool my family and I start craving pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. We always make several batches; some of the batches are for us to eat, but then we also like to make additional batches to take to our friends in the neighborhood.

I needed a quick gift to take to several people as a THANK YOU for helping me out with a church event. I purchased some beautiful, pumpkin-scented candles and then decorated them with a brown, satin ribbon bow and a beautiful, die-cut flower.
I used two shades of orange cardstock and the Spellbinders Textured Flowers dies the Platinum 6 Die Cutting Machine to create the flowers. The leaves are cut from Carta Bella Classic Green Shimmer Cardstock.
These dies are GORGEOUS!!! I love that the petals and leaves have elegant line details … so different than just a plain die! Love that!
I love when I can use my craft supplies to dress up an everyday object. Try adding a handmade flower to the next gift you give to kick it up a notch! It definitely adds that special, custom touch!
