Crafty Tutorial: Grow your own Felt Flower Wreath

DIY Felt Flower Wreath

Make this Felt Flower Wreath fast!

Can you ever have too many wreaths?  I have a collection of wreaths that I rotate throughout the year.  Do you do the same?  If you’d like to add one more to your collection, we have a sweet & petite wreath today that will add a sunny touch to any little nook in your house.

The secret to this super-fast Felt Flower Wreath by Kathleen George is that she uses ready-made felt flowers.  If you’d like to take this shortcut, you can find similar flowers online at etsy or EK Success. However, you can also use up felt scraps you have on hand and DIY your own flowers.

I’d like to hear more from you about your wreath making and other crafts.  What sort of wreaths do you like to make?  What are you crafting right now?  What other crafts can we share with you on Crafts ‘n Coffee?  This  summer, I’m planning to showcase kids’ crafts, cupcake crafts, and a few  organizational ideas for the home.  Sound like fun?  Or not?  Please drop us a line and let us know what you think.  (And one lucky commenter will win this wreath!)

Without further ado, here is Kathleen’s Felt Flower Wreath.

To make the Felt Flower Wreath, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM Brand Foam: 8” flat wreath
  • 1/8 yd. green felt
  • Felt and felted flowers
  • Tools:  Straight pins, thick white craft glue or low temperature glue gun and glue sticks

To make the wreath:

Close up of Felt Flower Wreath
Arrange your flowers and add a few leaves.

1. Cut four 1 ¼” x 18” strips of green felt.

2. Adhere one end of a felt strip to the back of the wreath. Wrap felt strip around and around the wreath, overlapping slightly with each  pass.  Secure other end with glue.  Repeat with each strip till wreath is covered.

3. Arrange flowers on wreath ring, and pin in place till you like the arrangement.  Glue flowers to wreath ring. (Optional:  Kathleen added leaves and small circles cut from light green felt.)

4. Cut ½” x 8” strip of felt; knot ends together.  Pin and glue loop to back of wreath for hanger.

And, that’s it!  For more wreath inspiration, check out the Wreaths, Wreaths, Wreaths! photo album we’ve posted to Facebook and Flickr.

Now, please let us know more about what you like to craft.  Leave a comment and tell us about your crafting plans, and what else we can share with you on Crafts ‘n Coffee.  Next Friday, we’ll select one name from the comments to win Kathleen’s wreath.  Thank you for the feedback.
