If you’ve read my blogs for any length of time, you know how much I love making felt wreaths. Looking to use this gorgeous turquoise felt, and add a bit of shimmer with some glitter, I came up with this easy felt wreath! This would be perfect for your front door, your mantle, or any blank wall that needs a bit of color and texture! Let’s get started…
felt (I used 6 pieces for this wreath)
straw wreath (mine is 10″)
Step 1: Cut your leaf shapes out of your felt. I did this by first cutting my felt lengthwise into stripes about 1.5″ wide, then cutting the strips into pieces about 2.5″ wide, and then cutting those rectangles into leaf shapes. I used sharp scissors and was able to cut through several layers of felt at the same time to make it go a bit faster.
Step 2: Time to start hot gluing! Pick a point on your wreath to begin, and, working around your wreath, layer your leaf shapes, making sure not to leave any part of your wreath form visible…
Step 3: Add some sparkle with some glitter! I chose just to add glitter to only one section of leaves, but you can glitter-ize as many as you’d like. I used a post-it note to protect the felt surrounding the leaf I was adding glitter to. I used a foam brush to add Mod Podge to the leaf, added some glitter, and then gently tapped the wreath to remove the excess.
Let dry, and you’re done. I love how versatile this wreath is. You can easily change out the colors (or even use patterned felt) to match any holiday or season!
