Felt Flower Christmas Wreath

I got the Christmas bug early this year, and to help satisfy the decorating itch I decided to make a wreath.  Store bought decorative wreaths can be really expensive but this one only cost me $7.50 in materials!

DIY Christmas Wreath

Jamie at White Table Style was the inspiration for this project.  I followed her directions pretty closely, which you can read here


For this project I used:

  • a twig wreath, Hobby Lobby: $4.99
  • 5 pieces of glittery felt, Hobby Lobby: $0.50 each
  • scissors
  • glue gun
  • yarn to hang the wreath

Start by cutting spirals for your flowers.  I free-handed all of them and they worked just fine, but you could certainly trace a template onto the felt if you feel like making more perfect flowers.  For the most part I did 4 flowers per felt sheet, but I did do some smaller ones and a couple bigger ones too.


Then roll the felt spirals into a rosette.  Secure the end with a small dab of hot glue.


Once all your felt rosettes are completed start gluing them onto the wreath, varying the size and colors as you go. 



And that’s it!  This was a very easy project that took about an hour to complete from start to finish.  I doubled up some plain white yarn to hang my wreath from a 3M hook placed upside down on the back of my door.



Easy peasy!  One Christmas craft down, who knows how many more to go!
