Halloween is just around the corner!

Ok, yes it really is only September but the leaves are changing color and falling off the trees, the air is cool, & Halloween is asking to come out and play! This new project seems to be all the rage right now. Although this technique has been around for a very long time, it seems it is making a huge comeback. I have seen these beautiful rosette wreaths in all sorts of styles, in fact I will be hosting a class for a fall wreath (see the top, right hand side to register) to get you into the mood of season changes!  
Here is this super cute & fun Halloween project. I love it!!!

Supplies Used:
122351 Frightful Sight DSP
119685 Cherry Cobbler Paper
105117 Pumpkin Pie paper
119686 Early Espresso Paper
121045 Basic Black paper

Hot Glue Gun
  1. Cut various strips of DSP and Card Stock at 1"x12", 1 1/2"x12", and 2"x12"
  2. Score each piece at 1/4"
  3. fold accordion style (make sure you start with folding one strip up and the other strip starts down)
  4. Use sticky strip to glue the two together
  5. Push the rosette down and squish (like my technical term) the rosette together to form a circle. 
  6. Use your glue gun to hold the rosette together
  7. Stack them around the frame
  8. Glue all pieces together!
