Fall is here!

I found these adorable fall ideas over at Heartland Paper. So stinkin' cute. I really gotta make time to make these. I especially love the wreath. I don't know why but I am really into wreaths this year. I want to put them on every wall of my house. :)

Fall Wall Hanger

Fall hanger

To make this on your own, you will need:
8 heavy weight patterned papers (we used My Mind's Eye)
4 5x7 photos
"FALL" die cut lettering (we cut ours using the QuicKutz silhouette)
1 sheet of 12X12 Autumn shape stickers by Reminisce
1 sheet of Autumn words stickers by Reminiscec
1 dowel
2 dowel caps
Jump rings
Brown Ink Pad
Corner Rounder
Small Hole punch
Pop Dots
Assorted Ribbons

Cut patterned papers to 5x7 cards, round corners of papers and photos.
Lay out papers and photos in desired order.
Using pop dots, adhere lettering to cards
Place stickers as desired or as shown in photograph
Punch holes in the center top, bottom, and sides of each card (do not punch holes in outside edges of cards) *Be careful to punch holes evenly so that they will match up from card to card.
Using jump rings, connect cards on sides and top and bottom.
Thread ribbon through jump ring connected to the top cards and tie around dowel.
Tie a variety of ribbons around dowel to add fluff!

Paper Loop Wreath: This classic wreath can bring a splash of fall color to your door. It is simple to make and can easily be customized to match your decor.
Fall Wreath Full
To make this wreath, you will need:
8-10 patterned papers
1 foam wreath base
Glue gun and glue sticks
Ribbon for tying

Cut each patterned paper into 36 1X4" strips
Staple each piece in half, forming a loop of paper
Begin gluing pieces to wreath base around the outer edge of the wreath. Overlap pieces slightly. Continue in layers until wreath is covered completely.
Fall wreath close
After entire wreath is covered, fluff loops out so they fill up the open spaces.
Attach ribbon with pins in back of wreath. Tie in bow and hang where desired.
