So I Made This Wreath…

I was cruising through Pinterest the other day and found a great wreath idea. It seemed easy enough, if not a little tedious so I decided to give it a try. So here is how I made the..

First, I bought 2 yards of red felt and then went about the task of cutting it into 3 inch squares.

The original wreath plan said to cut the felt into circles.
Hehehe… I don’t think so.
I’d already committed myself to cutting out 3,534,432 squares, ….there is no way I am cutting them into circles.
Anyhoo…keep cutting the squares..and cutting the squares..and…
You get the idea.

Then take a square and just fold it in half and roll it up so it looks like this..

Then take a straight pin

and pin it into the heart foam wreath form. Keep rolling and pinning and rolling and pinning and…
You get the idea.

The closer together you pin, the fuller the wreath.
Just keep going until you have the whole wreath covered. I did not do the back though because I wanted it to lay flat against the door.
Once I was done, I pinned some ribbon onto the back for a hanger.
I also hot glued some flowers that I had found at Hobby Lobby..and voila..

The wreath is complete. I’d say the whole project took about 3 to 4 hours from start to finish and was relatively easy but, like I said, tedious. You also may want to wear a thimble or you will have a VERY sore thumb the next day.
Trust me.
Happy Tuesday.
Love,
Val

  1. That's beautiful! and a true labor of love :) I stumbled upon your blog when I was looking for spring door decor. (Love the boots!) I added Saints and Scissors to my own blog roll. I can't wait to try some of your ideas.
