Paint Chips & Burlap = Fall Wreath!


 
I guess I should add there is also an embroidery hoop and cardboard.
 
 
 
Have you seen these cute paint chips that are in paint stores lately?
 
Before the person that left me a not so nice comment one time about "pilfering" gets upset, I ask the guy who was mixing our paint if I could have some to make a wreath. After he quit laughing at me and told me they were free and to take all I wanted, I grabbed some fall colors.
 
 
 
I had cardboard that I had saved out of new dishes we bought.
Reason #1116 of why you never throw anything away!
 
 
 
I glued the "petals" around the center.
 
 
 
Then took some batting and a round coaster (Reason #1117) and
 
 
 
glued burlap around it.
 
 
 
And glued it to the center.
 
 
 
I stretched burlap in a wooden hoop and glued the flower to the front. I glued another coaster to the back to help hold it.
 
 
 
I thought about staining the hoop and/or adding ruffles around the edge, but the more I looked at it, I loved the simplicity of it just like it was.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Happy Friday!

That's very cute, Terri, and i didn't know they made paint chips in anything but rectangles. Gotta check that out! Have a great weekend!

Oh this is lovely and very resourceful. How many stores must throw out all the samples they have leftover. Thanks for sharing.

モンクレー ダウンはニューユークで大人気なファッションブランド品です!!高品質で低価格のブランド品です。若いモノで評判が高いです。ファッションニュースでいつもモデル三がこのブランド品を持つことを見ました!前日、一人の有名人がわざとアメリアへいき、Moncler Mokaを買いに帰りました。彼女はミューユークへ行ったら絶対このブランド品を入手するはずです!ファッション性と実用性が高いモノですから
