Welcome To The 91st Masterpiece Monday!

Hi Everyone!
It's starting to finally cool down here and I'm getting into the Fall spirit a little bit more.  
I did a little upcycle craft for this week. I used some picture's from the Graphics Fairy and materials from around my house. 

I've had this Spring wreath for a couple of years. I got it at GW. I decided to upcycle it into a Fall wreath by first removing the yellow flowers. 
 I left on the pussy willows, which are neutral and still give me a nice blank slate.
I repurposed some card board......
And glued on my images from the  Graphics Fairy.

 I hot glued burlap to the back......
 added a wire for hanging.......
 and made two different sizes of wire coils to hot glue onto the wreath.
 I attached my mini post cards with hand stamped clothes pins and hot glued the center one.
But it just needed something more, hummmm? So I looked through my stuff and found these brads.

 Yes, just what it needed!
 I wanted it to look fun and whimsical and a little old fashioned.
 Such cute graphics at the Graphics Fairy, eh?
 I might upcycle this again for another season, so fun!

I'm linking this week to Brag Monday at The Graphics Fairy
