Happy Fall Owl Mesh Wreath

Finally I finished my Fall Mesh wreath for Thanksgiving.  Just in time to take it down in a couple of days to get ready for Christmas decor lol.

I found the wreath frame at DT about a month ago.  I found the wide multi colored mesh at WAl-Mart.  I really liked the pretty colors from Orange and yellow that flowed into purple and pink.  I found the very pretty shiny orange mesh on clearance at Michaels the following week... I put all of that together with pipe cleaners and left them sticking out all over the entire wreath waiting until I could find some pretty wired fall ribbon.  That was not so easy on our small town as everything fall got pushed out of our local stores to make room for Christmas.  Ugh I was so frustrated.  So my Hubby and I had an eye appointment last week out of town and I thought ok perfect I will go find some pretty fall wired ribbon to finish up when we are done.... Nope, that didn't work out too well because  I had not p,annex on getting my eyes dial acted and not being able to see afterwards lol.... Oh well!  So I had no choice .... I went and searched my stash in hopes of finding something to work.  I ended up finding some spools of burlap wired ribbon ... One in green and the other in pink... So that is what it got lol
For the center part I found the cute Fall leaf chalkboard on clearance while in search of my fall ribbon, lol. I  thought the reddish purple glitter would match well with the colors in the wide mesh.  I decided to color up the cute Fall Owl Digi-stamp from Desert Crafting Diva's with my spectrum noir markers.  I cut it out with my ScanNCut 2 before I colored it in.  I wanted to have it say Happy so I went to my Cricut and did the word Happy and then added to more shadow layers to go behind and mesh with the way Fall is matted with colors.  I wasn't that happy with the letters I cut to go on top for the word happy... Ugh the more I looked at it the more I said no way in my mind.  So I decided to go around the letters with coordinating puffy paint... Ugh FAIL!  So I decided to dig out some fall chipboard letters and added those to the fall mats instead.  I may add some things to it next year when I can find fall stuff again but for this year (a Couple of days... Lol)  it will work.
