Thanksgiving

It's been a couple of days since I had made anything, or  posted anything.  This project was in my head, but not actually done until tonight.  I new I wanted to make this, but didn't know if I wanted to get a premade wreath form or do something else.  This is what I started out with.

I found some 9" paper  plates at my Dollar Store.  I liked the pattern on the plate and the rest of the idea just started popping.  This is the finished look.
The flowers are from the Mother's Day Banquet cart.  I cut them at 2.5" down to 1.75".  I took my chalks (basic brights) and went around the edges of each petal.  I took a leave brad for some and a regualr brad for the others.  All the flowers were done with scraps that I had. ( I have a lot of scraps, can;t throw any away.). I think I really like the way it turned out.
