Greeting fellow paper crafters. I needed a Thanksgiving wreath for my front door, I have never had one and I have had 30 Thanksgivings as a married lady….I guess you could say this was loooonnng overdue!
I printed the Pilgrim and Indian images, from Sunsational Stamps Friends That Feast Together set, at 3 inches. I used a wooden embroidery hoop as the “wreath” and stained it with Distress Fired Brick stain. I love using distress stains on wooden items, the stain takes real well on any item I applied it to.
I then “stretched” the burlap and ribbon into the hoop and decided to use the indented side as the front, that way I could place all my elements inside it. In the upper portion I put the little Pilgrim pie lady with the message that I mounted on a Tea Dye Distressed base. I made a loopy bow with wire ribbon and attached that at the bottom right corner. Then I hot glued some silk autumn leaves to the frame and burlap in the bottom right. I nestled the little images amongst the leaves and called it done. It was a real quick project and I now have something festive for my door to greet my Thanksgiving guests.
