Leaf Wreath

So we have a big tree in our front yard and when I saw the new freshly fallen leaves on the ground a couple weeks ago it gave me and idea.  I was going to buy a pack of leaves from Hobby Lobby but I'm glad I didn't.    I gathered up some leaves, with the help of my precious Husband who hand picked some of them, and I started to pin them on to a foam wreath I had lying around.  The leaves weren't crunchy yet so it made it easy to pin them on.  I wrapped the wreath in burlap first then pinned on leaves until I liked the look and added an orange ribbon and a little tag I had in my stash.  I wish it said give thanks but this was all I had.   I think it works. 

A free wreath?  Yes please!
