Make a Holiday Felt Flower Wreath {Christmas Tutorial}!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I hope you are having a wonderful day with your loved ones!! Today I am thankful for so many things, including this wonderful blog world.

One of the biggest blessings in my life — my sister Ashley is here to share her Felt Holiday Wreath with us!!

Here’s how you make the wreath:

Supplies:

1 ball of yarn – I used a super bulky size 6 yarn. This makes it easier to wrap the wreath and makes it look cozier :) With the one ball of yarn I was able to make 2 wreaths.
Felt – I picked a cardinal red, gray and cream colorscheme.
Embellishments (pearls, beads, broaches, jewels)
Wreath form – 10 inch -
  • Start by wrapping your wreath form with the yarn. Keep it tight and even. The bulkier the yarn, the faster this step will be.
  • Take your felt and make some felt flowers. I searched “felt flower tutorial”on pinterest and came up with an amazing selection of tutorials to make all sorts of flowers, from simple to uber-complex. My favorite came from A Pumpkin and a Princess (A Pumpkin and Princess


These flowers were so simple to make that I am making them as bows for all my Christmas presents this year! 

  • I embellished the flowers with the gray pearls and rhinestones to add some Christmas bling.
  • The next step is to hot glue the flowers onto your yarn wreath! Simply place pin them in place to figure out the arrangement and then glue in place.
  • I added a little glitter cardinal bird left over from my Advent Calendar. This project is great because you can add little embellishments that are left over from other projects.
  • Hang your wreath with a ribbon and you are all set!

A simple, but impressive Cozy Felt Christmas Wreath!

HINT - Since the placement of the felt flowers makes this wreath lopsided, I used a leftover Command Strip to hold the wreath straight on my door. I just placed it at the bottom point of the wreath, between the back of the wreath and the door!

Thanks Ashley!!!
