Felt scraps in several colors, including green for leaves
Craft and Floral Ring, 6 inches in diameter
Wood skewer (optional)
Step One: Cut petal shapes from a strip of felt, approximately 1 ½ inches in length. Cut a small slit near the base of each petal and fold one edge over the other. Secure with a dot of hot glue, using a skewer to protect your fingers from the heat. This adds dimension to the petal. Continue this with all your petals until you have a whole stack.
Step Two: Cut a small circle of felt approximately 2 inches in diameter. Cut a slit near the bottom and secure with hot glue, in the same manner the petals were made. This is your flower base. Glue petals around circle.
Step Three: Roll up a small strip of felt for the flower’s center. Secure with a line of hot glue. Add center to flower with hot glue.
Step Four: Use this same method of constructing petals to create leaves and more flowers for your wreath. Experiment with different sized petals and layering colors to create unique blooms.
Step Five: Decide how you want your flowers placed on your wreath. If desired, cover wreath with strips of felt, securing with hot glue. When you have your design in mind, secure flowers to wreath with hot glue.
Tip: Add a hanger to the back of your wreath with a felt loop.
