Thankful for Jute Ribbon

With Thanksgiving just one week away, I thought I'd create a little home decor piece. Something to remind us of the reason for the celebration. Here's what I came up with.

Give Thanks Wreath

For the base of my wreath, I cut a 12" diameter circle from cardboard. It's actually the cardboard from a pack of cardstock. LOVE to recycle! Then, I covered and embellished it with patterned paper and paper piecings. All of my leaves and flowers are stacked and popped using Pop Dots and Glue Dots.

To give the wreath even more texture, I added in some Natural Jute Ribbon. I just cut out little squares from the roll and tucked them behind parts of my clusters using some Glue Dots. Another fun little touch are the Chocolate Pearls inside the centers of the sun flowers. You can find a HUGE assortment of these Kaiser Pearls in the store at such a great price! I finished off the wreath with some chipboard alphas and more jute ribbon for hanging.

Thanks for popping in today! Hope you're feeling inspired to create a little Thanksgiving project of your own. You can certainly find plenty of supplies in the store. See you next week with a little gobbler and a tutorial!

Toodles, Aphra
