Pinterest…..it’s slightly addicting isn’t it? A few weeks ago, I saw an idea on there for a cute wreath, made from felt. I decided to make my own version so, off to JoAnn fabrics I headed (with a coupon in hand, of course). I bought about a yard and a third of red felt.
A dear friend of mine had a ladies craft night. Basically, I took up most of her living room floor with my giant sized piece of felt. I traced circle, after circle, after circle. For my circle pattern, I used a roll of duct tape. See, duct tape really is helpful for everything!
What you’ll need:
•One 12″ Styrofoam wreath
•LOTS of pins (I used most of a container that had 500 in it)
•1 1/3- 1 1/2 yards of felt
•A pattern to use for tracing your circles
Lots and lots of circles.
Next, I cut out all of those circles. It took a VERY. LONG.TIME.
I think tracing and cutting the circles took about 4 hours (give or take) so, I’m glad I worked on this at a friends house. Really, it was the perfect project to do on a ladies craft night.
After all the circles are cut, the fun starts. Take a circle, fold it in half.
Next, fold it in half again.
Stick a pin through it and then attach it to your foam wreath. Pin your pieces of felt all over the wreath until there isn’t any white showing. I did a small area at a time and worked my way around. Please forgive my pink fingers. I was spray painting before I started this project and I tend to get a little messy.
This is the back of my wreath, when it was (finally!) done.
If you have any questions about this project, feel free to ask! Although it took a long time to finish this wreath, it was really fun to do and I love how it turned out.
Have a beautiful day, friends!
