Paper leaf wreath

This is a picture of a cute wreath the girls and I made for a friend in the nursing home. It is made from scrap booking paper, a piece of lightweight cardboard and glue. We cut out a circle by tracing a bowl (about 8 inches diameter) and then cut a circle out of the middle of that. We covered the circle with brown construction paper. We cut leaves out of different colors. We had 4 different leaf patterns we used. We glued them in layers with the stems inward. We glued a ribbon to the back to hang it with. It really looked cute on her wall. Just had to share it!
