I cant believe that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! I also can’t believe it isn’t spring yet and those 2 sentences don’t go together. Last year I shared a Burlap Wreath DIY and as the year as been going on I have been adding seasonal attachments to it. Same wreath, different decorations. In anticipation for Valentine’s Day and springs arrival I am sharing this Felt Flower Valentine Wreath. This can easily be changed into a spring wreath just by changing the colours of the flowers slightly.
To make the Felt Flower Attachment you will need:
- Felt in your desired colours
- Glue gun
- Something round to trace
- Washable marker
- Floral Wire
To make felt rosettes, trace circles on to felt and cut them out.
Starting from the outside of the felt circles, cut a spiral.
Working from the outside in, roll the felt while gluing the felt along the way. When you get to the end, use the center of your cut swirl as the bottom of your rosette. This gives it a flat finished bottom.
Your finished rosette will look like the flowers below. Adorable!
To make a felt carnation, cut a length of felt and glue in half by gluing the outside edges together. When the glue is dry snip the other side like the image below.
Roll and glue the unfinished edge to create your flower. For a different variation, glue down the centre and snip the open end.
To create a more open rosette, use the same rosette method as above but cut a wavy circle with a wavy spiral.
When you glue your rose together it will have more of an open shape. These are my favourite kind of felt flower!
Make as many flowers as you will need to make your wreath attachment. As many or as few as you like.
To attach to your wreath cut a rough shape of what you would like to attach. To secure it to my wreath I added some lengths of floral wire by threading it through the felt and twisting it in place. The extra length will be twisted around the wreath wires to secure.
Flip over your base and glue your flowers in place. After the glue has cooled (I know this because I brunt off a finger tip), snip off any felt base that wasn’t fully covered by a flower for a more finished look.
Now fasten to your wreath.
I added a floppy red ribbon to the top and hung it up over the fireplace!
