Felt Flower Wreaths For All Seasons

On Christmas Eve I finished up my last holiday craft project, a felt flower wreath:

I was inspired by a version that I found on Pinterest from Better Homes & Gardens, and used the instructions and template to make my own with some changes:

  • Foolishly, I tried to wrap the wreath using one continuous piece of yarn. Not so easy to do when there’s a cat sitting on your lap! Ultimately I used three separate very long pieces and glued the ends down in the back with some tacky glue. Next time I will use more pieces and wait until the cat’s asleep in another room. :)
  • Instead of pearls (or pearl pins), teensy-weensy pom poms are a great choice. Mine were left over from my felt monkey ornament project.
  • I layered the flowers using two colors of felt, and using the small flower template as the inner part of the big flower.
  • Don’t simply secure the end of the felt spiral with glue – also add a few dots of glue to hold the petals together.

Just because Christmas is over doesn’t mean that you can’t make a felt floral wreath to enjoy at other times of the year. In fact, the one I made was so easy and cheap (especially with craft store coupons) that I plan to make another to enjoy. Here are some ideas to inspire you and me:

Pale blue, white and cream are a great combination for winter. This wreath seems to have a slightly white-washed look about it. Try spray-painting your wreath for effect.

 

One of the prettiest wreaths I spotted, these felt flowers have such a varied look even though the color scheme is simple. The fresh greens are perfect for spring.

 

Use pinking shears to cut out some of your flowers for a textured effect, like this wreath:

 

Bold colors, buttons,  and a decorative monogram make this wreath a unique choice for your front door. Learn how to decorate a wood monogram with my tutorial.

 

Orange and fuchsia are a great combination for late summer and early fall. This one uses a unique puffy flowers, and the crafter used this tutorial to make them.

Instead of wrapping yarn around the wreath, try wide grosgrain ribbon or fabric.
