Hello Fall Wreath - Carta Bella

 Hi everyone - it's Tya here on the blog today sharing with you a fall inspired project using the beautiful "Hello Fall" line from Carta Bella. Oh boy- if you love fall, this line is for you! The color palate is gorgeous and I simply am enamored with all of the fall shapes and icons and sayings of this collection! I made a fall wreath for my project and it was so much fun! I want to make more!

To make this wreath, I started with a 10 inch foam wreath form. I then cut several different shapes and sizes of leaves from cut files using my Silhouette. It was so fun to cut all the leaves from all the different pattern papers of this collection. It was so hard to choose which ones to use, they are all so beautiful. I then started hot gluing the leaves to the wreath form until it was entirely covered. The leaves vary in sizes, the largest being about 5 inches and the smaller leaves are about 2 inches.

 To add a little personalized touch to my wreath, I found a photo from our annual trip to the pumpkin patch and changed it to a pretty sepia tone. I made an embellishment cluster around the photo using some stickers from the Element Sticker sheet, some Ephemera and a decorative paper bow. Here are a few close ups of the cluster.

 I added some raffia behind the paper bow. The bow also has a pretty pearl brad in the center for some bling.

Up in the top corner I added another embellishment cluster and a fun tag shape from the Frames and Tags Ephemera and tied a raffia bow on top with another pearl brad from the Decorative Brads. I hot glued both of the embellishment clusters to the top of the leaves and I did add some foam tape and pops dots between the layers for some dimension.
Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today. It is so fun to be able to use my paper crafting products to make home decor projects for my home. I can't wait to display this! Hopefully I have inspired you to make one for your home as well. Happy Crafting everyone!
