I enjoy making my own wreaths and the other day I was feeling crafty so I made a really easy, budget friendly, felt flower and yarn spring wreath for my foyer.
I had all the supplies I needed on hand so this cost me zero dollars. You need a wreath form, felt (I think you can get it 4/$1), yarn ( have tons from trying to learn to knit and crochet), ribbon to hang your wreath and a glue gun. Optional: decorative trim, small branch of some kind of spring flowering tree or shrub (fake)
A word about wreath forms – I’ve never made a wreath that I loved so much that I wasn’t willing to take it apart and re-use it or re-fashion it over and over again. I have a few different types of forms and different sizes that I got from various places. The thrift store (just pull everything off it), clearance, purchased with a coupon, the dollar store, the dollar area at Target etc. I rarely go out and buy a new wreath form for a project. Lots of times you don’t even need a “wreath form” you can just cut yourself a circle or square from cardboard, a cereal box, or poster board/foam core.
Easy DIY Felt Flower & Yarn Wreath
1. wrap your yarn around your wreath form…yawn…watch a movie while wrapping yarn around your wreath form
2. make various felt flowers & a few leaves. You can make your flowers all one kind. I chose to make a few different kinds. If you don’t know how to make a felt flower, I show how to make felt rosettes in this post Christmas Felt Rosette Tree or you can of course just google “how to make a a felt flower”. It’s SO easy!
3. glue felt flowers onto your wreath in a manner that pleases you
4. Optional: glue your pieces of trim onto your wreath and a branch of a spring flowering tree or shrub and then hang your wreath with a ribbon.
This was a really inexpensive and easy spring wreath to make!
I like making my own wreaths since it’s usually very hard to find ones in the colors that I like.
Last year I used a green fluffy feather boa for the base of my spring wreath. You can see it here Easy DIY Spring Wreath.
