Patriotic Felt Wreath

52K Views
Using felt for projects is not only economical, but so easy! The colors are vibrant and perfect for our take on the Patriotic Felt Wreath.

I used a thin piece of cardboard to hand draw a simple teardrop shape to use as a template for the felt pieces used in this project.

Cut as many pieces as you can fit on a piece of felt. I used 5 sheets of red, white and blue felt for this project and used just about all of them. After I traced the template onto the felt with a pencil and cut them out, I found it was much faster to cut two pieces of felt at a time.

Overlap the bottom edges of the felt piece to make a petal shape. Use straight pins to attach to a wreath form. I used a straw wreath form, but you can get the same affect with a Styrofoam wreath form.

Starting at the outer edge of the wreath form, work to the inner edge in a scallop pattern.

Attach the blue pieces last. I used white foam star stickers to finish the wreath. You can use a dab of hot melt glue if you are afraid the stickers won't hold.

I love the swirled effect! It does take some time to cut all of the felt pieces, but it's well worth it!

    Couldn't you use a die cut machine to cut out the petals? You'd just have to get the oval die. Just a thought instead of having to fussy cut all those pedals. I'm going to give it a try.

Inspired? Will you try this project? Let the author know!
