DIY Fabric Felt Flower Wreath

It's Tutorial Time!
This is such an easy, inexpensive wreath and would look fabulous on your front door.  The fabric combination possibilities are endless and they also make great gifts.

Here's what you need:
~A wreath, your choice of size.  I am using a 10" one.
~Fabric (about 1/2 a yard, depending on wreath size)
~Straight pins
~Floral pearl pins
~Ribbon 
~Felt

Step One:
Cut fabric into strips about 2-3 inches wide


Step 2:
Pin the narrow edge of a fabric strip securely to the wreath

Step 3:
Wrap wreath and continue pinning fabric securely onto wreath until the entire wreath is covered in fabric.



Step 4:
Cut circles out of your felt.  These can be as little or big as you would like and the circle doesn't have to be perfect.

Step 5:
Fold circle in half and then fold the half circle in half again.


Step 6:
Pin the "flower" onto the wreath.  


Continue pinning the flowers until you feel you have enough flower power going on.





Step 7:
Pop open those pearl floral pins and start randomly poking them in the wreath (making sure not to poke all the way through!)



And VOILA!!!


If you make your own fabric wreath, I'd love to see pics!

Thanks for the great tutorial! We're moving into a house in about a months time, an old stone Maltese house- over 100 years old. Its like stepping back in time when you walk into this house- so excited!! Anyhow- I would love to make a wreath or two- especially when it comes to the holidays. Looks quite easy and inexpensive. Love the damask print and pink too!

That is beautiful!!! I never work with felt, but I think I might need to give it a shot. Such a pretty way to dress up a door or wall. :) Thanks so much for linking up to my party. :)

Just found your tutorial for this wreath! So cute!!

Carolyn said...

Love this. Going to get the items an make it this week. I do have one question. You have ribbon listed as an item needed but I don't see where it was used. Do you actually use it?

just call me d said...

Hi Paula Kathlyn! I found your wreath design through Pinterest and was so excited to make it last night, but realized I didn't have a wreath form. I was determined and made my own wreath form so I could recreate this beautiful wreath. Check out my DIY photo tutorial on YouTube I created to document the whole process. [Hope you don't mind...I linked to your blog.] :)

I just made this yesterday at my first Pinterest party. I used a gray zebra print and yellow felt for the flowers. Thanks for posting the tutorial! It was super easy to make and I received TONS of compliments!
