This is one of my favorite projects ever.  I cost pennies to create, I absolutely love fall decorating and crafting, and upcycling is my thing.  To make this wreath, I used my Sizzix and Tim Holtz leaf die, but if you don’t have a die cutter, you could do this part by hand with a leaf template, or use leaf shaped paper punches.  They work great on aluminum cans. Let’s get started on this vibrant, eco-friendly autumn leaf wreath!
