DIY Felt Flower Wreath

DIY Felt Flower Wreath

Have an empty space on your door or wall?

Make this awesome felt flower wreath!

 

This felt flower wreath is easy to make and incorporates a lot of techniques for awesome results.  You can customize it by using the colors you want and by using the types of flowers you want to make for it.  Very versatile.

5 sheets of felt will make 112 pieces for the covering for the foam base.  The curved shapes that you cut remind me of cutting a bunch of fish scales!

Hot glue the ends in place as you travel around the foam wreath, overlapping as you go.

There is 4 different flowers in this wreath and each have their own directions.

Black Flower

Each flower takes one piece of felt cut in half the long way – fold and sew down the long edge of all pieces on the fold side.  Sewing part can be skipped, but does make the flower easier to roll up.

Cutting on the open side – cut fringes about 1/4″ apart stopping before the sewing line.  Do the same to a small piece of white felt, as well, for the center piece.

Start rolling the small white piece and attach the end with hot glue.  Glue on the black piece and roll that around the small white piece – gluing as needed as you go around.  Repeat with a second black fringed piece.

Roll up the piece of felt and secure with a hot glue and a round piece of felt on the bottom – to keep everything in place.

White Flower

Cut a piece of felt into 3 long pieces and use two of them for each flower.  Fold and sew on the fold side of these.  The sewing part can be skipped, but does help when rolling the flower.

Cut each open side into spikes – making sure not to cut past the sewn edge.  Place one on top of the other – offsetting the spikes.

Grey Flower

The grey flower is made in two different sizes.   To make the smaller ones – cut two circles out of one piece of felt.  To make the bigger ones – cut one big circle out of a piece of felt.  Cut all circles into spirals.

Roll up the spirals and glue.

Assemble all of your flowers onto the wreath and pin in place before gluing – that way you can move something if it doesn’t look quite right.

attaching flowers to felt wreath

Take a long strip of felt and cut it into three strips leaving together at the end.  Braid all three strips together.
