By popular request, today I’m going to teach you how to create a yarn wreath with felt flowers! Before I begin though, I need to note that I was 100% inspired by Itz Fitz etsy shop. I saw her wreaths pinned all over pinerest and had to track down the source. She makes the most GORGEOUS wreaths. Check them out here.
Okay, for this project, here is what you will need:
- wreath form
- felt (or fleece)
- embellishments (optional)
- glue gun
The first thing you’ll do is wrap your yarn around your wreath form. Just wrap and pull taut, wrap and pull taut until the cows come home….or until you’re satisfied with the look….whichever comes first. (I used the entire ball of brown yarn.)
If you like the look of the “x’s” on the wreath, take coordinating yarn and wrap it around in one direction. Then cut and secure with glue in the back and wrap it the same way in the opposite direction. This will create a cute “x” pattern with your yarn.
And now onto the felt flowers. In trying to figure out how to make these, I read several tutorials but none explained how to create the “two tone” effect. I’m sure there is some fabulously creative way to make these (other than the way I’m going to show you) but this is what I did….
Please watch the video tutorial and I’ll explain! **Note: If the video does not appear below, please click here to be taken to the video.**
So that’s it! And here is what you’ll end up with after your labor is finished.
Ack! I love it. So incredibly cute that I can’t wait to make another one for Christmas :)!
