I haven't made a wreath in a while, but I've been meaning to put an updated wreath on my front door and I finally got around to making one! I decided to use felt since it is inexpensive, a no-sew fabric and it comes in so many pretty colors! Here is my Simple Spring Felt Wreath!
To make a wreath, you will need:
- (3) Colors of Felt (approximately 3 sheets each)
- (1) Straw Wreath, plastic left on
- Pinking Shears
- Low Temp Hot Glue Gun
First you will cut all of your felt into thin strips using pinking shears. I made my light pink the thinnest, then my hot pink a little thicker and the grey was the thickest strips.
Alternating the order, you will lay the felt strips around the straw wreath and hot glue them in place. I made sure to vary the amount of felt that showed just a bit as well.
After you are done, you can make some simple felt flowers to hot glue to the wreath. (See my tutorial for simple felt flowers HERE) I followed this tutorial except that I cut my felt using pinking shears for this project.
This wreath would also be perfect for Valentine's Day. But I love mine for Spring too!
