Autumn Wreath.

It's hard to believe that in a couple of weeks the kids will be back in school again.  With our house renos (we are madly painting every evening now after kids go to sleep), we haven't been able to really get away anywhere this summer, and it's sad to think that end of summer is just around the corner. 

For my next project, I wanted to create something for the home using wonderful autumn files from SVG Cuts.  I decided that I needed a welcoming wreath for our door when we move back into our home next month.  So, that is what I did. 

Click here, for a detailed instruction on the SVG Cuts blog page.

I cut up all the pieces and glued it onto a 18" wreath purchased from Michaels.

Here are some shots I took of the completed project:


  1. Beautiful wreath!!! Love the colors and so much detail!!!

  2. This is absolutely gorgeous! So much depth and attention to details! And beautiful colors as always. Love the little wheelbarrow full of pears... ;-) This is too beautiful to leave outside where it will be ruined in no time!... (on the opther hand it'll give you an excuse to make another one, LOL) Is there some kind of spray you can use to protect it?

  3. Thanks guys! It was so fun to make! I have a glass window storm door, and it'll be kept behind there, so should be protected from the rain! With the protection spray though - I was wondering the same thing. I seem to recall seeing something at Michaels... have to go back and check. Does anyone know about a protection spray?

  4. Thienly you are an over achiever! But don't stop...I can't say if this is the most intricate work yet, but I've just had to scrape my jaw off the floor, so I hope your happy.
    LOL! I see my doppelganger is now following you too, she and I were separated at birth I think, we both have great taste:o)
