Fall Wreath

I have been on a mission to find an inexpensive, nice fall wreath ever since my husband painted our front door a few weeks ago.  (It was more difficult than I thought it would be to find what I wanted.)  Then... I found a plain 18" grapevine wreath for $4.97 at Walmart, I saw a beautiful wreath online, and I was able to make one I LOVE!  Here is my version:


You can find my inspiration for this wreath {from Little Things Bring Smiles} here.

So, are you excited to make one now?   

Here is how I made mine:

1)  Cut circles out of felt.  I used a CD as a template.  (My version uses 18 yellow flowers and 12 off white flowers -- so you will need 18 yellow circles and 12 white circles.) 

2)  Cut a "spiral" shape out of each felt circle.  

3)  Starting on the outside, wrap the felt until you form a flower.

4)  Secure the end with some hot glue. 

5)  Arrange the flowers on the wreath until you are happy with the how it looks.  Then, secure all the flowers using a hot glue gun.

Didn't it turn out great???  The beautiful fall colors even make me a little less sad that summer is over.  :-)

  15. I think your wreath is much nicer because you can still see some of the vine. Having said that both look beautiful decorating the doors. Hopping from Katherine's Corner. TFS

  27. COOL!!!
    We had to cut a bunch off of our Curly Willow tree recently (rubbing on the roof!). Instead of tossing or burning it, Mom & I decided to make some wreaths out of it. They turned out looking cool but they're just sitting in the garage right now, but.....
    Now, I know what I'm making my mom for Christmas!!!
    We're required to make everyone a homemade gift each year! This is perfect! Better yet, since we have tons of different colors of felt already...it will be FREE!!!!! I'll just have to make it a springtime wreath!
    Maybe I can get my daughter to help too! If I used a different glue, that is.
