Hello everyone! Fall is all around us and depending on where you live…you’ll see all these incredible colors of reds, oranges, and golden yellows as the trees turn. Audrey here today I am so excited to share this fall wreath that celebrates the beauty of fall made with iCraft® Mixed Media sheets and Orange, Red, and Amber Watercolor Decofoil™ Transfer Sheets!

Fall Leaf Wreath Project Instructions:
I used a foam wreath that I wrapped in burlap ribbon. I found twigs in my yard and tied them on with floral wire.
For the leaves, I painted the Light Weight and Heavyweight Mixed Media sheets with acrylic paint, let them dry and cut out the leaf shapes on my Silhouette. On my silhouette, I used the fabric setting with a blade depth of 7 and a speed of 5 (you could probably get by with a depth of 5 or 6).
Then I just spread a little DecoFoil™ Liquid Adhesive glue on each leaf with my finger. I let them dry until tacky, added the foil on top, and ran it through my Big Shot to help press the foil into the glue.
Finally, I stitched over each leaf with my sewing machine and brown thread.
And here it is hanging on my front door. I am so pleased with how this came out and will be using this technique of foiling on the Mixed Media sheets again!

This is so beautiful! I’m just starting to learn about these types of craft projects and how to use the products. Can you tell me what a Big Shot is? I’d love to make a wreath like this!
