Thienly’s Corner – Autumn Wreath

Share/Bookmark

With so many of Mary's gorgeous autumn SVG collections, I couldn't resist making a home decor item! I've been looking out for a beautiful fall wreath for so long, and haven't found the right one, so I decided to make one! I cut up all the pieces, gave each of them lots of love, and attached all the pieces onto a 18" wreath (purchased at Michael's).

SVG Collections Used:

Heirloom Pumpkin Flourishes SVG Collection
September Afternoons SVG Collection
Harvest Hill Farm SVG Collection
Gourds Galore SVG Collection

Dimensions

Here are the exact shapes, sizes and colors I used. Size to the dimensions shown below with “Keep Proportions” checked in the Shape Properties window.

Design Tips

Thienly - SVGCuts Design Team Artist

  • When trying to add depth and texture to your project, you can use various tones of the same color to achieve that feel. Notice that I have kept it to the browns, greens and yellow, but used so many different shades.
  • I inked all the edges with brown ink to give it more vintage, autumn feel.
  • For the cut files that I have marked as a blackout, use the blackout option in SCAL - this will be the bottom layer to the corresponding file. With any multi-layered element, I used pop-dots in between the layers to create a 3D look.
  • Using the glue gun, glue each piece in the desired location, and hold it there for a few seconds. The drying time of the glue gun allows you to lift your shapes up, thus giving your project some dimension!

This wreath will make any door in your home look inviting! Welcome autumn!
