Decorating: Felt Flower Wreath


[I hereby interrupt the Santa's Workshop Posts for this decorating update.]
I adore Purl Bee's Felt Flower Winter Wreath, and it completely inspired me to create a felt wreath for my daughter's door.  While my house is fairly traditional with cranberry as the predominant color, I have enjoyed being a bit more whimsical with my daughter's room.  And since her room is pink and green, I went with varying shades of pink for the color scheme,

My version is a little different, so the directions are below.  But I highly recommend you check out the original Purl Bee version as well.


FELT FLOWER WREATH

Supplies:
Felt in varying shades (dark pink, light pink, and white)
Embroidery Floss in varying shades
Assorted Buttons
Wreath Form (or cut one from cardboard)
Wide white Ribbon
Ribbon for hanging
Glue
Tape
Scissors
Needle
Purl Bee's Flower Template

Directions:
(1) Wrap the wreath form in ribbon, taping the ribbon to secure it.

(2) Cut out a variety of flower shapes from the felt.  I stuck with poinsettias, dogwoods, clematises, and poppies.  Start laying out the flowers on your wreath form until you get a pattern you like.  Stitch the buttons on your flowers using embroidery floss.

(3) Once you like the design, begin gluing your flowers to your form.  (Elmer's glue worked well for me, though I also tried fabric glue on a few flowers.  I often find hot glue to be too harsh for felt.)  Allow to dry overnight.

(4) Once dry, wrap a ribbon around the top of the wreath and you are ready to hang it.
