Patriotic Felt Wreath

4 Materials
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!

    Love this so much! Can’t wait to try. How big did you cut out the felt? Thanks for the step by step. Looks time consuming but doable.

    Can you give a idea about how many pedals on a sheet you give and is it a 12x12 square and size wreath. You can use plastic spoon.

    Thank you
