Book Page Fall Wreath

So, you probably know by now that I love all things book-page-craft related. I have seen so many cute variations on a fall wreath, that I thought that I'd try my hand at one. I love how it turned out!
I started out with a straw base and wrapped strips of chocolate brown burlap around it. Well, actually, I guess I started out by cutting out various different leaves from my designated craft book. I used a number of different types and sizes of silk leaves for my template. Then I did the burlap thing!
I like to hot glue my leaves on in quadrants, but you totally don't have to. I made sure to glue some towards the inside, and even a layer on the back for added fullness and dimension.

Some leaves I crumpled, and some I brushed brown craft paint on.

I love the way it turned out, and how great it looks on my antique mirror!
