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.
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.
Materials I used for this project:
- Straw wreath form (Wal-Mart)
- 5 sheets each red, white, blue felt (Wal-Mart)
- White foam star stickers (Wal-Mart)
