My Spice Cake Wreath

Stampin' Up sells beautiful designer fabric that coordinates with their paper and inks.  I love to look at it and to see what other people create.  However, I don't sew.  I can't make totes, aprons, or even placemats.  I can, however, make something that requires no sewing at all!  I made a wreath.  I used the Spice Cake fabric and mixed in some chocolate chip corduroy, ivory muslin, and some brown metallic tulle.  I cut my fabric into strips and tied them onto a foam wreath.  I added a bit of retired chocolate chip ribbon to attach the wreath to the holder on my door.  Then I realized that this wreath was smaller than past ones I've used and you can see the ugly hanger.  No problem... I stamped some leaves, cut them out and used to hide the bright blue hanger.  Now I just need to sit back, drink cider, and watch the leaves turn colors.
