Paper Leaf Wreath

Vintage, Paint and more... wreath made from book page and scrapbook paper leaves

Last week I showed you my Fall Mantel and told you that I would be posting a tutorial about the paper leaf wreath I made as the feature of that mantel.  I had gotten the idea that I wanted to make a wreath out of paper this year when I was awake in the wee hours one night and my mind was working overtime as it does then.  Paper is one of my favorite mediums - next to paint and I love to create with it.  I love how this turned out and how it contrasts with the black chalkboard I mounted it on.  So without further ado I will tell you how to make this very simple wreath for yourself.

             Share It One More Time Link Party!

We love seeing what you all have to link up each week.  You never cease to amaze us with all those awesome creative projects and recipes. I just can't wait to get started.

Tammy had her surgery and is home resting.  Let's keep her in our thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery.

Surgery didn't keep Tammy from sharing some awesome things with us this week though.
Did you see her gorgeous Fall Decor on her porch?

TBT - Fall Entry 2013

Vintage, Paint and more... vintage entry done with black and white geometric design

Well, here we are at another Throwback Thursday and I want to show you my entryway from last year.  I had just painted all the black and white pieces for the entry and decided to do something just a bit different for fall out there.  So I let my imagination sort of run with it and I decided to use black, white and gold with just a few touches of orange.  I also mixed up several different geometric designs to keep it just a bit more interesting.  I loved it all.  It was different, it was whimsical and it was definitely outside my traditional box.

Fall Mantel

Vintage, Paint and more... a vintage mantel done with a paper leaf wreath and dollar store pumpkins

It's beginning to look a little like fall around here.  I finally got everything done to put my Fall Mantel together this weekend.  I really didn't have to do much because I already had most all these things but, with the temps and humidity we have been having I just was not motivated to put out pumpkins and fall leaves yet  This year I decided to go with the traditional colors of fall.  I love the oranges, golds and browns. that are so prevalent now.  Last year I did a more neutral design and although I liked it I wasn't in love with it.
