I've been anticipating the fall and decorating my front porch! Sometimes I can't believe things like that come out of my mouth. What a grown up I am, here getting excited to decorate my porch. Ha! Well, anyway I guess it's the little things that excite me!
According to other blogs this wreath was going to take me a really long time and the circles would be a complete B to cut out. BUT it didn't take much time at all! I made the whole thing in less than a Colts game! I started making it this past Sunday during the game, got tired, took a quick nap and then finished it!
Here's how to make your own!
DIY Felt Wreath
-At least a yard and half of felt 60" wide.
-Something around 3" in diameter to trace circles (I used a Ball jar lid)
-Marker or pen to mark circles
- dress makers straight pins
-Styrofoam wreath form (I used a 12")
-Wreath hanger or nail in door.
Styrofoam forms at JoAnn Fabrics. Can be found at most craft and hobby stores.
-Cut a good amount of circles before you start the wreath. Unfortunately, I did not count how many I used.
-Fold circle in half and then in half again. Push pin through the bottom and pin to the styrofoam form. This begins to hurt your fingers after awhile and I suggest using a thimble.
At first I was pinning them very close together, but you can kind of spread them out a bit. Be sure to go different ways with the folded circle. Also there isn't a need to pin to the back of wreath since it will need to lay flat on your door.
I bought some burlap to tie my and hang from the door, but there a plenty of different ways to add to the wreath. It was so easy I am thinking about making a red one for Christmas!
