Hello everyone. Christin here today to share with you a fall wreath made with the lovely new collection Spellbound.
I started by cutting out leaves that were slightly different in shape and size. I wanted the wreath to be kind of discreet so I mostly used the papers with lighter colors for this wreath.
Since I didn’t work with so many papers i found a different way to set the papers a little apart. I cut out some leaves in vellum and glued the layers together, that way the leaf looked lighter.
To set the different leaves apart more I stitched the stem and veins with different colors.
Since the embroidery hoop is pretty thin I used a fast drying glue to glue all the pieces to the embroidery hoop.
I wanted a few colors to pop so I added one paper layer of orange. I cut out six identical leaves in 3 different sizes and glued them on top of each other to add some extra dimension.
To add some dimension to the leaves I bend all the leaves in the middle so they wouldn’t lay completely flat.
I hope I have inspired you to make something pretty to hang on your wall.
