Halloween/Autumn Wreath...

Good morning all. 
     I almost forgot that I have another project that I wanted to share with you.  I headed over to one of my co-workers houses last weekend to work on some holiday wreaths that I had seen on YouTube a couple of weeks ago.  I of course took my trusty sidekick (Madison) with me.  All three of us had a great time crafting and eating some Caramel corn that Madison picked out just for the occasion. I didn't realize just how much it  fit until just now when I was typing up my supply list and discovered that one of my papers I was using is called Caramel Corn, lmbo... Sorry that just struck me as funny.   :O)
     I just love how this turned out and it truly didn't take as long as you might think.  I wanted to make mine to give to a friend that recently just bought a new home. It was all I could do to not take it over to her house that night, so both Madison and I took it over to her the next morning first thing.  I think it  took her longer to unwrap it than it did for her to hang it on her front door.  Don't you just love it when someone really loves what you make for them?
     Madison also made a smaller wreath that was more of a traditional Halloween color with purples, greens and oranges.  It turned out just adorable as well, but because I am such a 'great'  Mom this morning I can't seem to find the pictures that I took of hers.  :O(  If I find them, I will add them later. Sorry guys and sorry Miss Maddie. 
     My only problem is that the two pictures I remembered to take of my wreath  really don't even show how pretty this is.  I will tell you however that I have already started to think about what papers and how many foam wreaths I need to buy to make my family all a wreath for their Christmas doors.  lol...
     Hope you like it.  You can see the YouTube video on how to make this right HERE.  I think that you will find that it is super easy to make and I am telling you it is so worth the time. 
     Ok,  before I go and get crafty I will leave you with the Halloween Candy link right HERE,  Just in case you know someone that has been hiding in a closet or something all month. Just kidding. Make sure to tell your friends.  You get an extra chance with everyone that you suggest over to my blog.    Remember, there is only four more days before both Madison and I pick the winner.
     Have a GREAT day everyone.  The sun isn't shinning today, but that's ok... Talk at you tomorrow.
Hugs, Lisa G

Oh that's just gorgeous! Such lovely colours, I'm not surprised your friend loved it so. I'll get round to making a wreath one of these days. It won't be going outside when I do though... paper and torrential downpours don't mix so well! lol. :-) x

Wow! Lisa! What a beautiful wreath! I cannot image your friend not being thrilled! Sorry I haven't been to visit in awhile. And I've gotten so far behind, I doubt I'll be catching up. Still no definitive answers on my FIL. Anyway, just wanted to let you know I haven't forgotten your blog. Will be back when I can. Hugs, T.
