Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1-1/2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Cut 2 inch wide strips from the Kelly felt. This will give you strips that are 2 inch x 36 inch.
  • 2
    Take your wreath and put it on a flat surface. Make a small mark on one side with a pen, so you can quickly identify which side is going to be the backside of the wreath. This mark will eventually be covered by felt.
  • 3
    Starting on the back side of your wreath, take one strip of felt and wrap it snuggly round and round the wreath to double-check that the end of the strip winds up on the back of the wreath. If it does, then you can unwind and remove the felt strip. This is just a practice step to get the feel of what you will be doing to create your wreath and to make sure that all of the felt strip ends only appear on the back of the wreath for the most pleasing look. Tip: Depending on the size of your wreath, you may need to adjust the length of your strips. You can trim as needed as you go along, always trimming the felt so that the end of felt strip is in the middle of the back flat portion of the wreath.
  • 4
    Put some glue on one end of the felt strip and place and press onto the Styrofoam wreath.
  • 5
    Wrap it snuggly round and round the wreath until the strip ends on the backside of the wreath.
  • 6
    Add glue to secure the felt end in place.
  • 7
    Take another strip of felt and put some glue on one end of the felt strip and place slightly overlapping the previous felt end.
  • 8
    Repeat steps 5-7 until wreath is fully covered.
  • 9
    Cut flower petals from felt colors.
  • 10
    Cut out a 1 inch circle from Yellow felt for each flower. Glue the petals onto the piece of Yellow felt, with the Yellow felt acting as the flowers' centers.
  • 11
    Make sure wreath is good side up on your table.
  • 12
    Position flowers all over wreath until you have your desired arrangement.
  • 13
    One flower at a time, begin gluing the flowers in place.
  • 14
    Hang your wreath on a hook as is, or follow steps 15 to 18 to create a hanging strap.
  • 15
    Cut a 3 inch wide strip at least 24” long of Kelly felt.
  • 16
    Cut a piece of Pink ribbon to the same length.
  • 17
    Glue the Pink ribbon to the middle of the felt strip.
  • 18
