If you have been following me for a while you know by now that when I find a technique or a medium I really like I kind of go overboard using it. Well, this past week I introduced you to a fun project using brown paper lunch bags and made some of the cutest little rustic pumpkins with them.
I enjoyed that process so much I started looking for more things I could do with the same technique.(Look out - I'm sure there will be more projects in the future.) I had a Styrofoam wreath form lying around waiting to have something done and since it was nearly the same material as the dollar store pumpkins I thought why not. I also had a ton of those lunch bags left over from the scrapbook store . ( I used to make small albums with them.) Here's what I came up with - my brown paper lunch bag fall wreath.
I love it - I love this technique - I love the end results - I have just fallen in love with it all. I don't have step by step instructions but you can check out the lunch bag pumpkin tutorial .I used exactly the same process to cover the wreath that I used to cover the pumpkins. When I was done I just cut some feathers out of book pages, brown paper lunch bags, and music scrapbook paper to embellish the wreath with. I then added some burlap and lace flowers I had made a few months ago. I don't have a tutorial for them so will have to add that at a later date. I think next to my book page wreath this is my favorite wreath I have made. I love working with paper and this fall has been so much fun putting some paper projects together.
You might also like the Paper Leaf Wreath or the Paper Strip Pumpkins I made. Both are quite budget friendly and super easy to make.
What's your favorite medium to work in? I love to hear from you so please leave me a comment below. I answer all comments with email.
Until next time- have fun creating something you enjoy
