I am one of those people who just LOVE autumn. Honestly, I can't get enough. The moment winter hits I am already dreaming about the next fall... the leaves turning, the smell of cool rain and burning wood in the air... I could go on and on, but I will spare you. :) Since its *almost* autumn, I am already planning and making my decorations. I have a small hoarde of tiny wreaths and I thought making one of them into an owl would be fun. So without further ado, here she is...
I started with a little 8" grape vine wreath and layered up some Cream colored Satin Scalloped Edged Blooms, some Vintage Burlap Roses in Sunset and Barn, some Felt Pearl Blossoms, some Fabric Leaves, and a Vintage Edge Mum. For her eyes, I started with some Flower Bottle Caps, I inked them up with a black ink pad, punched some Kraft doilies to fit inside, and I added some Wood buttons, and some Velvet Resin Blossoms to the centers. For her beak I painted a large heart from the Shot Through The Heart chipboard set. To top it all off, I added a sweet little Vintage Pearl Butterfly pin to the flowers and a bow made from the Canary Paper Twine Cording.
And now, I'm one step closer to autumn. Would it be crazy to start decorating now? :)
