Fresh Fall Wreath

Although it's not officially fall yet, it was time to retire my spring wreath.

See why?

Once upon a time it looked like this (and you can read about that project, here.)  With the intense afternoon sun, the green moss has faded into a dull, dirty, green color. 

Last fall I made this wreath.  I was in a total felt kick then.

I did like the yarn I used because it was textured and easier to wrap because I didn't have to be so careful...I could overlap and it didn't matter.  I decided that a textured yarn was the way to go again.

Last night I ran to Hobby Lobby and came home with the following items:

Chocolate colored yarn

 miniature pumpkins, squash, and acorns

3 fall berry bunches (barely used but one)

fall colored leaves

After wrapping and wrapping and wrapping the yarn, I carefully arranged and hot glued the fall goodies I had purchased. 

The only thing I may go back and fix are the squash.  The white-ish circles on the bottom bugs me, and I think they need to be painted.
