Fall means it's time to hang a different wreath on my door.
Luckily, I was thinking ahead when I made my spring wreath a few months ago.
I decided to make the flowers removable so I could use the same wreath for different seasons. You'll see what I mean when I show you pictures of both.
Here's my fall wreath...
And my spring wreath.
Want to know how to make it?
This is what you need:
Wreath (Hobby Lobby, Michael's or other craft store)
Artificial flowers/branches (whatever looks pretty to you!)
Wire (I used floral wire that matched the wreath)
How to make the flowers:
Start with a circle of felt. The flower will turn out much smaller than your circle so start big to get an idea of how big they'll turn out.
Cut felt circle in a spiral pattern until you reach the inside. Make sure you have a circular space of felt in the very middle. You'll need this later.
Starting from the outside end, roll the felt. Looser rolling will result in a looser flower. Play with it and see what you like.
When you've finished rolling, glue the circular space onto the rest of the flower.
There you go!
I played around with different sizes, and also discovered that if I cut the circle into a wavy pattern, the flowers would turn out more textured...
Those are my favorite!
Next, you're going to glue the wire onto the back of the flowers.
Cut pieces of wire (about 2-3 inches in length each) with wire cutters.
Apply glue to the back of the flower. Quickly affix wire. I then covered this area with a small piece of felt. This helps the wire stay put.
Make as many flowers as you'd like. Cut pieces of the flowers/leaves and stick it all in wherever you want.
I love making removable flowers because it's so easy to move them around and rearrange anytime.
My love for wreaths has grown recently. They're the first thing you see at your door and they give a "homey" feel.
