• Falling Leaves Autumn Wreath

    I live in sunny Florida, so the season that I miss the most is Autumn – the crisp air, apple picking and all of the colorful leaves!  We always try to get up North to see the leaves turn but this year we won’t have the chance, so I have created this quick and easy Autumn Wreath.  Kunin has so many great colors of felt that give the wreath a great layered effect and the entire project was completed in less than one hour!
