Simple Felt Wreath

These simple felt wreaths came about  because of my two bare walls in the house that needed some Christmas decorations.   In less than an hour I was able to make two large felt wreaths from the supplies I have on hand.  The mini felt wreath is even easier to make. Hang it on the Christmas tree or attach it to a package.

 I like the idea of hanging a wreath in front of a picture frame or a bulletin board.

Tutorial for Felt Wreaths

felt wreath supplies

Supplies

•   double ring wreath forms {12″ diameter}
•   felt sheets, assorted colors {9″ x 12″}
•   ribbons and twine
•   glue gun & glue sticks
•   scissors
•   simple leaf templates, print Here {approximately 2 1/2″ long by 1 1/4″ in width}

for mini felt wreath
•   green cloth covered stem wire 18 gauge  {18 inches long}
•   strong paper tube {2 1/4″ diameter} or something similar,
to use as a tool to wrap and shape the wire into a circle – mine came from an empty ribbon paper tube

Mini Felt Wreath

Choose a felt color to be wrapped around the wire frame.  Cut long one-inch wide strips from the felt sheet.  There should be 9 strips total.  Take one felt strip and dab a pea-size hot glue near the beginning of the felt and quickly wrap the strip once around the wire frame to secure it.  Once the felt strip is attached, start wrapping it around the frame.  Glue down the end of the strip and repeat the steps again until the wire frame is completely covered.  It will take 7-9 felt strips.

Arrange the cut leaf pieces around the frame, but do not hot glue them down until you are satisfied with how they look on the wreath..

    I agree with the above comments ~ your felt wreaths are sweet and adorable. I want to make two for my hutch doors. I don’t have any wreath wire frames so I might try your idea of wrapping the wire to make mine. Thanks for the great idea.
