Our mini cardboard wreaths made from yarn, fabric and felt come and see...
Mini yarn and felt flowers wreaths
my girls did these all by themselves they took a bit of diligence but the end result was worth it!!
Here is a great tutorial for making felt flowers that my kids did with ease.

What we did and used:
*(thick) Cardboard for the mini wreath cut and prepared
*yarn (I cut peices that were not to long so the girls could easily bring them back and forth)
*Felt and scissors to make the flowers
*Glue gun to glue on the flowers
*Ribbon for them to hang
These are their little wreath ornaments that they want to hand on the tree. :)
Oh and I decided to try my hand at it too...I used some of my fabric scraps and this is what I came up with.
A sweet little scrap fabric wreath. I actually would like to make another one and pick some fun fall colors, wouldn't that be fun. Maybe next year. :)
I just tied the scrap fabric around the cardboard
pushed them tightly together
and then trimmed the fabric when I was all done.
Looks more like spring then fall. :)
Fall is leaving us, as we begin to leave the chillness of autumn and enter the cold of winter. I found a string of colored leaves the other day that made me so very happy. I love how Thanksgiving helps us to enter into the fun Holiday season of Christmas and helps me say goodbye to a fleeting Aututmn. :)
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, especially our dear family back in the States. We miss you and love you.
Wanting to practice a heart of gratitude and joy no matter the season or day...
