Fall Wreath Craft

Fall is officially here!
The leaves are changing and falling to the ground.
The weather is...well almost perfect. Everything's just beautiful around here and I've been in a crafty mood. I found this cute Leaf Wreath (try saying that 3x's out loud lol) that I thought the kids and I might enjoy.(Above) is the wreath that I made and hung on our front door :)

We started out with a basket full of colorful leaves from the yard,
cut out some circles, clipped off the steams and started gluing...

Jacob (13) made this lovely yellow wreath.

Joel (4) & I worked on his together :)

Jared (7) created this masterpiece ;)

Jon (11) did a wonderful job on his...

and Jorja (6) added acorns to hers :)
It was fun & messy. The perfect combination for a good time around here ;)

What did you use for the circles?

I didn't have any paper plates so I put two pieces of card stock paper side by side,placed a dinner plate in the middle of the two pages and traced around it for the outer circle and a cereal bowl for the center circle, cut them out and taped them together lol
