Fabulous Fall Friday - Wreath

If you are following the Follow Me Friday Blog Hop.... from Trendy treehouse  Cleck here to learn more about Me!

So I was going to make this my Thrifty Thursday, but I had to go to "town"and ended up gone from 9-5, ever have one of those days, whew, I was sooo tired. the only thing I had to actually BUY for this was the leaves, and they were $1 at JoAnns. Everything else I had on hand.
even the corn husks.  I froze a lot of corn this year, so there was a mountain of this stuff in my garden.  The wreath was .50 at the thrift store, I think I bought it last Christmas time. I tore the husks into smaller strips, and I used hot glue, for almost everything.
Paint stamps and tiny square of burlap were just in my stash, and the little $1  frame I bought for another project, I guess I will still have to get one for that when I am ready I guess.
Use a sponge brush to lightly brush on the paint, and practice on paper.  A stencil would work great too.
Break the back off the frame, and wrap wire around it to attach it to the wreath.  I think it would be cute to write Fall if my frame was a little bigger.
Finished.  I really love it, but.....  my front door is still white so it doesn't look very good.  I guess I better paint the door.
