My friend recently hosted a craft night and we all made these lovely felt wreaths.
They were very easy and inexpensive to make.
To make your own you need:
foam wreath form
20 rectangle pieces of felt
First you need to cut the felt pieces into smaller squares. One piece of felt will give you 12 - 2 inch squares.
My friend showed us how to cut your squares quickly...demonstrated here with a piece of paper.
Hold your felt horizontal.
Fold in half.
Fold in half again.
Cut the edges of each side.
Then cut the strips in thirds.
Next take one square and fold the bottom up as shown.
Then fold the right corner up.
And the left corner back. You will have this "S-like" shape.
Take a pin and push it in the bottom point and pin onto the wreath form.
Make a star/pinwheel by putting several of these petal shapes together with all bottom points together.
Add more petals underneath the original pinwheel. This will make it nice and full. Fill in around and on the sides as needed. Continue this pattern and procedure around the entire wreath.
Pin a ribbon to the back to hang and enjoy!
I love the red on our front door!
I think it is a nice compliment to the wreaths with red bows we have on our front windows.
Have a wonderful weekend!
