Hi Everyone!
Welcome everyone to “Fall in love with Autumn” blog hop.
Featuring a fall wreath collection:
Let me just start with how much I heart fall {sigh}.  Leave’s turning gorgeous shades of orange, red and brown.  The crisp air, aroma’s of hot cocoa and apple cider from the apple orchards where we pick apples. Making apple butter & my most yummy apple cake! Oh, I can go on and on!  Well with that being said I have a treat for all of you today I have a group of talented ladies that can’t wait to share with you their fall wreath that they created for this gorgeous season.  We hope to inspire you and “fall in love with autumn”!  Enjoy! J
Ok, so a walking we will go...if you came from Tayna's then you're in right place, if not then you may want to start from the beginning at Misses Crafty's . The complete line up is listed at the bottom in case you get lost along the way.

I've seen these yarn wreaths & t-shirt flowers all over Pinterest, so I thought I would give it a try. This will be an indoor wreath since our front door is exposed to the elements. Sorry, for the bad pictures.

Next up is Janea, but before you go wandering off, you'll probably want to read about the Blog Candy aka "Doggie Treats"

I had a lot of fun making this & will definitely make another one after my slight little learning curve. To make the wreath I used a styrofoam wreath which I bought w/a 50% off coupon, otherwise they are too expensive. Yarn of course, an old t-shirt I got from the thrift store a while back (for this purpose), some canvas from an old apron, which I sprayed green w/a mixture of green fabric paint & water then heat set it with an iron, some buttons I was going to use for another project (still have more), an old belt for the hanger part & glue gun. I was so thrilled with myself when I came across this belt, it's perfect because you can adjust the wreath to has as low or as high as you want. Found an old one of my son's that I can totally use for another wreath. Think belts are going to be added to my list of thrift store wants. Hope this inspires you to make one!

Lluvia aka Misses Crafty, who put this hop together has some yummy "Doggie Treats" up for grabs. She is offering up a $20.00 gift card to Michaels or Joanns! You choose! The rules are as follows; you must become a follower of each blog and leave a comment on every stop.  Winner will be selected on 9-17-12.
