Easy Felt Leaves Wreath

Easy Felt Leaves Wreath

Here’s a super easy to make wreath using leftover strips of burlap and some felt ‘leaves’. I’m simply using straight pins to hold everything together, so it can all be taken apart and reworked later if I want, or made more permanent with glue.

Supplies:

A foam wreath form
White burlap scrap, cut into 2″ strips
Straight pins (or hot glue)
Different colors of felt
Pen + Scissors
Leaf Template {download mine}

How-To:

My pictures don’t show this, but I simply wrapped my wreath form with strips of burlap I cut into ribbons. You could also use a ribbon with a textured weave and avoid all the shaggy burlap thingies. I couldn’t bring myself to buy a large $17 wreath form in the floral/craft section, but I found a 14″ $5 wreath form in the Kid’s craft section at Walmart which worked fine. (Sometimes it helps to look over an aisle or so for a better deal).

To assemble:

1.) Wrap the strips of burlap around the wreath form and pin or glue as you go. Try to place pins on the back where they won’t be obvious. Never mind any loose strings, you can trim them all off at the end.

2.) Cut out your leaf template and trace onto your felt. Draw all of your leaves at once to save time. (I made 9 or 10)

3.) Now, cut out all your leaves.

4.) Cut out any other shapes you may want.. I cut out some kind of red berry thingies, and some long orange strips that I looped and grouped to make a ribbon.

5.) Next, arrange your leaves up the side in a manner pleasing to you, and pin or glue as you go. (Make sure any visible pen-tracing lines are face down.)

6.) – 8.) Add finishing touches.

When you get everything positioned the way you like, you can carefully trim off excess strings and smooth them down with a dab of elmer’s or fray-check, if you want.
