Easy Steps

To begin the Rainbow Felt Wreath, gather all of your craft supplies.

Remove the label from your wreath base, the embroidery hoop.

Loosen the screw on the embroidery hoop and separate the rings to create two wreaths.

Organize all the colors of the felt scraps. Use ALL the colors that you have on hand or purchase one sheet of 10-12 different rainbow colors. The good news is that these felt craft sheets are under fifty cents each at your local craft store like hobby lobby.

For this project, use the 9″ width of the felt piece and make a stack of bits and pieces that are long enough. Randomly cut the scraps and/or the felt sheets into strips, some skinny and some fat, with scissors.

For this 10″ hoop cut approximately 100 strips. This is a great task to complete while watching television.

Start tying the strips felt around the embroidery hoop in double knots along the sides of the wreath. Use the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock marks as a starting point. This is a great activity for the kiddos to help with.

Continue working around the entire wreath, pushing the strips together to get as many on as possible. The more felt strips tied onto the hoop the fluffier the wreath will be.

To finish the Rainbow Felt Wreath, trim any long ends with scissors. Tie a ribbon or twine hanger to your finished wreath at the top of the embroidery hoop.
