These are for my Baby girl Vanessa’s Class, she said to make the ghosts with funny faces so her friends wont be scared….

Fall Wreath

ok this is my second post for the evening. I made this for two challenges! I told you I got to get a lot of crafting done today lol! Well I made this project to enter in the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge. Our challenge is to create something to hang on the wall, vinyl, shadow box, sign etc. The second challenge I am entering it in is and Getting Cricky's Fall Blessings Challenge! She is giving away an awesome prize go check it out for a chance to win!

I decided to make a wreath to hang on my door. This is my very first attempt to make a wreath using the cricut, all the leaves were cut with the cricut!! It was a lot more work then I thought but I am happy with the way it turned out!!


Materials Used:

(There are 4 different types of leaves)

  • Create a Critter ( 2 leaves come from this one)
  • Everyday Paper doll Dress up
  • Give a hoot
  • DCWV Autumn Splendor Stack ( patterned and glitter paper)
  • DCWV Autumn Splendor Solid Stack
  • Foam Wreath
  • Ribbon

First I wrapped a ribbon around the foam. I cut the leaves at 6 in, 5.5 in and 5 in ( real dial size) .

After cutting them out I inked the edges and crumbled them up and inked on the front of the leaves. To give them a textured look.

Then I used hot glue and began to layer them onto the wreath. I decided to have them all go in one direction( it looks neater that way)

That’s it simple, but time consuming!!

I think it may need something more, what do you think?

Well that’s all for tonight..time for bed! Thanks for visiting have a great night!

I’m still here



I know I have been MIA for a few days now, but I was so sick I couldn’t even get out of bed. I had a severe infection in my kidneys and almost passed out from the pain a few times. I am on a series of antibiotics and other medications, but I am starting to feel better. Hopefully I can enter Emma’s and the Gabby Abby challenges this week!

I just got the CRI-Kits in the mail today so I am anxious to use them!

Have a good day!
