Stampendous and DIY Bangles Wrap up....

Just as all great things must come to an end, today is the last day of Stampendous/DIY Bangle Week, but no worries because I have more projects in the works and a ton of ideas running through my head. Be sure to stop back and visit!

Today's project uses the 8 inch DIY Bangle craft ring. I started by covering the entire wreath form with 2 inch strips of frayed burlap. My helper modeled the wreath at this stage, LOL! I adhered a piece of Quick Quotes pattern paper behind the wreath. 


Next I created a banner spelling out "fall" with Doodlebug Alphabet stickers and QuickQuotes pattern paper. 


I pulled out some flowers from Clear Scrap and Prima and aged them with coffee and inks. I stamped Stampendous Autumn Words on the red flowers. Buttons and twine bows finished off the flowers. 


I stamped Stampendous Hay Ride Kiddo's in Memento Ink and colored it with Copics. Next I cut it out and adhered the stamped image to the wreath with foam adhesive. 


Are you ready to check out what the rest of the Stampendous team has whipped up for today? Be sure to leave comments on the blogs to be eligible for a sweet prize of DIY Bangle and Stampendous goodies!
