Okay, so I love wreaths.  *Love* them.  But I decided to challenge myself a bit and create a non-wreath for Thanksgiving.  I have a little autumn wreath that I'll have up til probably November but then this will take over - it was a challenge partly due solely to the fact that I'm not typically a big fan of fall colors but for once I'm actually really pleased how something came out  Cheesy

In case anyone's curious, I used a wood plaque, a ribbon and fake flower, polymer clay for the leaves (and they're accented by little glitter-like flakes that are actually designed for nails), more ribbon, and pine cones

The plaque close up



The overall non-wreath (ignore the backdrop - the non-wreath will be on the door, not on our little control center)



One of the polymer clay leaves (you can see the word 'create' in there as well)



And I did the edges of my pine cones in gold glitter because, well, who doesn't love glitter?! (except my husband)
