Copper Gratitude Autumn Wreath DIY
I needed an Autumn wreath for the side door and wanted something shiny.  I love how this turned out with bright copper and metallic leaves.  The lettered gratitude is the finishing touch!
 You will need:
Copper Shimmer fabric
Willow Wreath Form
Metallic Leaf Garland
Wood sign
Hot glue sticks and gun
 Cut the shimmer fabric into 6 inch strips.  It arrives folded and rolled, so the crease would be hard to get out.  I cut it at the fold and used the strips to wrap around the wreath.
 Each strip is attached simply with a lark's head/girth hitch.
Just loop the fabric's center under the wreath.
 And thread the tails of the strip into the loop.
 Pull tight and done.  Perfect!  Repeat a million times.
 Once the wreath form is covered with shimmer fabric, just wrap the metallic leaf garland between every knot.  Easy peasy!  I used exactly the entire garland and twisted it to itself on the backside of the wreath.
 Then just scoot some of the shimmer fabric to the side and hot glue the sign right onto the willow wreath form.  I used a piece of scrap wood from the garage and hand lettered "gratitude" on it.  I used brown paint with a touch of metallic bronze on top.
 Hang it up and enjoy the cool breeze, the crunchy leaves and the bright harvest moon!
Sweater weather is the best!
