Copper Gratitude Autumn Wreath DIY

I received these goodies from Oriental Trading in exchange for this post. Affiliate links included. 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!

Single Mug of Hot Chocolate Recipe!

 Single Mug of Hot Chocolate Recipe! Sometimes I want hot cocoa, but I don't want to make a ton of it. Here's a simple recipe for just one cup!  Fill your mug 3/4 full of milk (I use 1%) My mug is oversized, so half it for only 8 oz of milk. Microwave until the temperature you like it.  I put mine in for 2 minutes.  Then add 2 spoonfuls of cocoa powder.  And 2 spoonfuls of granulated sugar.  Stir it up! Mine has always been warm enough to dissolve the sugar, but if you are making a cooler variety, use powdered sugar.  Then sit back and enjoy! Perfect for a cold winter night! (or any day of the week) And if you want to make a big batch, here's a recipe! Hot Cocoa Mix This post published on Doodlecraft first
