Now that we are feeling settled into our new home, I’m back to crafting and blogging again! Soon I’ll begin working on another painting for my home which I’m very excited about! In the meantime, a couple weeks ago I made this fun, modern wreath that I’ve been eager to post!
My friend and I enjoy making seasonal wreaths together, but this time I was happy to choose a combination of colors and a pattern that I can display for more than one season. Beginning with the inspiration links, we decided we liked the striped fabric on this wreath and the look of the felt flowers on this wreath.
While not all Pinterest pins for felt flowers provide tutorials, there are many great ones out there! We just went out to various tutorials to learn how to make our flowers. Here are a few of the ones I used: this with uneven petal borders, this with spiral petals, this with folded petals, and this rolled pom one. There are so many more varieties, but I wanted a bit of unity, so I stuck with slight variations of each of those I listed. That leaves many other felt flower varieties for me to try for future crafts!
My Personal Best Tip: If you use pin backs, you can insert the needle end into the fabric and leave the closure unfastened so that the pinned flowers are just resting in place on your wreath. Then if you ever want to reposition them or take them off and swap them out, you can just slide them off in a millisecond! I liked the option of using pin backs so that I can remove the flowers at any time and re-use the wreath for another creation during the year! Further, this option lets me re-purpose the flowers in another craft as well! Voila! Up-cycling at its finest. 🙂Explore More
