a Christmas wreath

I was going to make this wreath for my door this year, I bought all the felt needed for it even but I decided to do something different. I still used felt to make it, only a little of what I bought though, I have a lot of felt left over!

I used three shades of green, I cut each piece 4 times width wise and then I wrapped the strips around my 20" foam wreath until no wreath form was showing. I wasn't sure whether I was going to like the look or not but I really do love the stripes!


Once I wrapped the wreath, I cut a piece of red felt lengthwise a few times, each strip was about 2" wide. I then folded the strips in half and rolled. Once they were rolled, I stitched the bottoms to hold the roll together and then I hot glued everything into place. After rolling just these three pieces, I was glad I decided to make a different wreath! I don't think rolling so many pieces would have been much fun.

I'm pretty happy with my wreath this year, it's simple and pretty.

  5. It's lovely! I do like the rolled flower wreaths, but it seems like an awful lot of work. :)
