Felt Flower Holiday Wreath Tutorial

Pin It Now!

I absolutely loved this project.    I chose to do this in a deep red to be festive, but this would look great in all different colors to match the season or your decor.  Enjoy!

You'll need:
1/2 yard of 36"wide felt - cut into about 3"x 3"squares
Vine wreath
Hot Glue (lots and lots of it)

{Please excuse my ugly craft chair  :) }

Cut the felt into 3" by 3"squares.  A half yard will make about 60 or so squares.  

Start at the edge and cut a swirl pattern into each square.  

From the middle of the swirl, roll up the felt to create a flower shape.  The looser you roll it the larger it will be.  I chose to roll them rather tightly for a more "closed flower"look, but you can do this part however you'd like.  

Dab a little hot glue on the flower to close it, so it holds together and doesn't unravel.

Arrange the flowers and glue onto the wreath.  I wanted a bit of vine to show through, so I centered the two rows of flowers on the wreath so it wasn't completely covered.  

Once the flowers and glued on you can trim the sharp corners of the felt.  I chose not to to give it a little bit of a modern look.  

Voila!  So easy and adorable.
