9 - felt flower wreath

Before I knew about the church wreath making event, I had already wanted to make my own wreath, and I decided to do a felt flower wreath after seeing lots of great fabric flower project ideas on various blogs.
Now be warned that this is a slightly crazy idea because you need to trace/cut out about a zillion flower shapes and then make about a million flowers with them before gluing everything onto the wreath form. But it's fun...

  • Felt (I really have no idea how many of those little felt sheets from Michael's I used. Good thing they're only 29 cents.)
  • Flower template
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun & lots of glue sticks
  • Wreath form (mine's from the dollar store)
As mentioned, you need to start out by cutting out the shapes and making a whole bunch of flowers. Here are the two tutorials I looked at, where you can get the template for the flower shape and the instructions: Jones Design Company and Tatertots & Jello.
Then I just glued them around the wreath form until I was happy with how everything was filled in. I also added a couple red flowers for fun.Quick description, but it really did take some time to get all those flowers made... put in your favorite Christmas movie and do your cutting in front of the TV would be my suggestion!


  1. It looks really pretty, but it must have been a huge amount of work! Hmm, I think we need to invent a felt flower cutting machine to make more :-)

  2. I love the idea of putting on a Christmas movie to watch while you're doing the cutting out.

    What a great wreath - and I think the extra colour adds an extra bit of gorgeousness.

    Thank you so much for visiting Modern Country Style. Hopefully see you again soon.


  3. Wow! This is awesome! Love the title of your blog too!
