Fall! Fall finally arrived in our area. The colors of leaves decorate every hill and valley, the cooler and the freshness of the air is just perfect 🙂
I went looking for Fall/Autumn theme decorations from our storage and I realized that we do need more decorations in our house and my craft room, too 🙂 So here’s one of the the decorations I made:
Have I told you that I LOVE MY SILHOUETTE CAMEO A LOT? 😀 This handy dandy die cut machine is amazing craft buddy ever! I started with searching for Fall/Autumn Theme cutting file from Silhouette Online Store and found a bunch of them with pretty good deal because I subscribe to their monthly subscription.
I found this pretty Fall Wreath. Open the file on Silhouette Studio Designer Edition. Resize it to the size you like. I did mine to 11″ x 11″. Because I used 10.5″ circle cake base cardboard as the wreath base. After I resized it, ungroup the shapes to cut with different colors.
Once the shape is ready, send them to cut one by one to Silhouette machine. I used Red, Orange and Dark green cardstocks for the leaves and dark brown for the pine cones.
I want the pine cones look more sparkly, so I added some glitter glue all over them and set them aside to dry while I was working on the leaves.
I added the vine for the leaves using my embossing tool and foam pad.
Oh look! They are prettier now 🙂
When I arranged them on the circle cardboard, the center need something. I decided to have a thanksgiving quote for the middle. I found the give thanks phrase in my library from Kolette Hall Studio. I resized it first to fit in the middle of the wreath and the cut it using Black cardstock.
I added some Chocolate Distressing Ink on the leaves with dauber sponge to give some rusty and fall-ish looking 🙂
When everything is ready, I put them together using Liquid Glass glue from Close To My Heart. The pine cones I added them the last with 3D foam tape.
And it has its spot in my craft room 🙂
