Fall Ombre Rosette Wreath

My Fall Wreath! I needed a new one, it's been years! I saw this on flamingotoes.com and feel in love! I love the gradient colors, I did mine with the dark in the middle and bleeding out. You'll see that on the website she did hers starting from the top and "bleeding" down.

Supplies: Scrap fabric or quilting squares. I used different shades of yellow and then blends into different shades of red.
-Felt, cut into about 2" circles
- A grapevine wreath from any craft store
- And the website! To learn how to make the fabric Rosettes check out the Flamingotoes.com HERE
So I did three rosettes of each shade...

To make the banner. Oh my gosh, this is genius! These letters are printed on with the printer! Here is how.... cut a piece of fabric 8x10 and cut a piece of freezer paper 8x10. Iron the freezer paper, shiny side down, to the BACK of the fabric. This is so the fabric will feed through the printer! Then print! The pdf file for this is also from flamingotoes.com.
Then cut into triangles and then I rubbed the edges with black marker to "age" them a little bit.
I glued them to some twine and hung between extra rosettes.
I love it. I wish it was fall all year!
