I've been trying to stash-bust while I'm studying to avoid spending money on more craft supplies, luckily I'm a total hoarder so I still have plenty of projects to work on ~___^  I had this wooden wreath from Kaisercraft in my craft room for ages, so it was great to finally use it! I covered all the pieces with scrapbooking paper, realised that using all the leaves made it look way too busy, and then pared it down drastically to the four leaves and three birds you see before you today ~___^

I made the bunting from scraps of scrapbooking paper and baker's twine, the wooden flourishes are also from Kaisercraft, and the letters are chipboard ones that I'd had for ages and just updated by spray painting them white (they were a mixture of stripes and argyle before). I've still got a pile of leaves to use up, but I'm really happy with how this project turned out ^___^
