DIY: Fall Wreath

I know, it’s almost winter, but I have the cutest DIY fall wreath and I just can’t keep it to myself. I also have a super cute Christmas wreath that I’ll be sharing here in the next week or so to. I think I’ll be turning this in to a really cute spring wreath but we’ll just have to wait and see about that.

Supplies:

Supplies.

  • Yarn
  • Foam wreath
  • Felt
  • Ribbon
  • Hot glue

What to do:

Settle in. The first part takes a bit of time and patience.

Get to wrapping.

Get to wrapping.

Tie a knot and wrap your wreath.

Next up, making your flowers. Cut your felt pieces in to circles – depending on how big, or small, you want your flowers to be will determine the size of your circles. Once you have all your circles cut out you will cut those in to spiral strips.

Once you have cut your felt in to the spiral strips you will take one end and start wrapping it around itself (which sounds hard to explain but once you’re actually working these flowers that will make sense).

Ta-da! Flower.

After you have your wreath all wrapped with the yarn and you have your flowers all made all you have to do is put it together. Determining how you want your flowers arranged will be up to you based on your own likes and dislikes but I don’t think there is really a wrong way to do it.

I added a ribbon to my wreath, but that was my preference. I think if you wanted to leave it with just the flowers it would look just as nice. I also tied a tiny ribbon at the top of the wreath to be able to hang it. It is small enough though that if you wanted to use one of those over the door wreath hangers it would fit.

Final product.

What do you think? If you make (or have made) your own wreath let me know I’d love to see them!
