Hello everyone!  Audrey here today I am so excited to share this fall wreath that I made with the new iCraft® Mixed Media sheets and Orange, Red, and Amber Watercolor Decofoils™!

Project Supplies:

iCraft® Mixed Media Sheets – Light and Heavy

iCraft® Mixed Media Adhesive

iCraft® Deco Foil™ Liquid Adhesive

iCraft® Deco Foil™ Transfer Sheets

Acrylic Paints


Project Instructions:

I just used a foam wreath that I wrapped in burlap ribbon.  I found twigs in my yard and tied them on with floral wire.

For the leaves, I painted the Light Weight and Heavy weight Mixed Media sheets with acrylic paint, let them dry, and cut out the leaf shapes on my Silhouette.  On my silhouette, I used the fabric setting with a blade depth of 7 and a speed of 5 (you could probably get by with a depth of 5 or 6).

Then I just spread a little DecoFoil™ Liquid Adhesive glue on each leaf with my finger.  I let them dry until tacky, added the foil on top, and ran it through my Big Shot to help press the foil into the glue.

Finally, I stitched over each leaf with my sewing machine and brown thread.

And here it is hanging on my front door.  I am so please with how this came out and will be using this technique of foiling on the Mixed Media sheets again!wreath-door-1

    This is so beautiful! I’m just starting to learn about these types of craft projects and how to use the products. Can you tell me what a Big Shot is? I’d love to make a wreath like this!
