Autumn wreath: Putting it all together

Hello...........So this is the pre Ta-Dah post for my  Autumn wreath, With this wreath I  have completed all the four seasons in yarny goodness.

Above are all the elements for the wreath laid out together which gives a idea of how much yarniness is needed to cover the wreath, doesn't it look cute all laid out together.

There are little flowers, made using Lucy at 'Attic 24' Teeny Tiny Flower pattern, some of the flowers are from my other wreaths, but the berry coloured and sparkly pink ones were made for this new wreath.

Borrowing flowers from the other seasons sure has sped up this make, I only had to make one additional Rose, which is the Lilac one in the centre of this picture.  The smaller Roses are Attic 24 May Roses and the larger ones are from Nikki Trent's 'Cute and Easy' Crochet books.

Now I know there are a lot of flowers going on to this Autumn wreath, but we have had such a mild September that, all the flowers featured are still blooming in the Summerhouse garden at the moment and it's not unheard of around here to have Roses in bloom in December.

Next up we have Anemones, one of my favourite flowers and I'm pleased to say they are flowering away happily in a pot on our patio at the moment. This is my own pattern which you can find 'here'

Onto what makes Autumn special, the leaves, I'm so pleased I opted for a alternative colour scheme for the Autumn wreath, I'm loving the silver, berry and purple tones.

These leaves were knitted in a selection of yarns from my Stash.

Then there are the felt leaves, which are a new element for my wreaths, but I hope you agree that they really add to the look of the wreath.

Next up we have frost and cobwebs, the crocheted cobwebs I made using Attic 24 's Little Lacy Stars and hopefully when stretched onto the wreath will look a little like cobwebs.

Last but not least, the cute little Blackberries, I also have some little button daisies and some sparkly flower to add the finishing touches.

All ready to be pinned to the polystyrene wreath with it's knitted cover.

 Not long now to the grand Ta-Dah moment, oh go on then, would you like a little peak now?

 So exciting.......

See you next time .......

Happy Crafting
