Felt Flower Wreath

Felt flower wreath for doorThings finally cooled down in Southern California (yay!), and we’re ready to handle a wreath on our front door. Since it doesn’t feel like summer every day anymore, I wanted to keep moving forward with the autumnal decorating. Since I already had a dried flower wreath hanging inside, I wanted to make a felt flower wreath to hang on the outside. 

I love working with felt, so I’m happy to share how to make this floral felt wreath with you!

Felt flower wreathSupplies:
-felt flower and leaf template
-felt fabric in various colors (at least 1 yard in various colors is more than enough)
40″ 16 gauge steel wire
scissors
glue gun and glue sticks

Felt flower wreathStep One: Bend your wire into a circle, and overlap the ends together. To close the circle, twist and bend the ends of the wire together.

Add a dollop of glue to one end of the leaf, and attach that to the circular frame by wrapping the base of the leaf (with the dollop of glue) around the wire. Continue to glue each leaf on the frame, slightly overlapping the bases of the leaves on top of each other. Fill the entire circular frame with the wool felt leaves.

Continue around until the entire flower center is covered with petals. For my wreath, I made nine flowers; you can certainly make more or less. It’s totally up to you how many flowers you want on your wreath.

Felt flower wreathNow that you know how to make this one, you can make another next month for Christmas. Maybe you just want to do all white flowers and green leaves on the wreath, or you can go for the green and red color scheme. I think it would be cute to make felt flowers to use to adorn a present instead of a bow, or you can make some small felt flowers and attach them to some headbands as gifts for some little ones in your life (or for yourself). You can really do so many things with felt! –Rubyellen

  • I love how colorful it is. I think it will be perfect for Christmas with some red, green and white!

  • Love this! Felt is all kinds of ace – going to have to have a go at making one of these. Thanks for the idea x

  • hi, do you have a tip how I can fix the wreath to my front door? It’s a wooden door and I can’t fix it with a nail. It should come off easily again.
