And Saturday evening was my Grandmother's birthday dinner. So by Sunday I was basically exhausted. I know I owe you 4 tutorials. My plan is to do two today and two tomorrow:)
In searching for a simply awesome wreath to make for my front door I came across this:
Ruffly Felt Rosette Wreath from Domestifluff
However, I decided to do something a little different. Instead I decided to make the felt rosettes like the ones I did for the Felt Rosette Ball Ornament. (You will find how to make the rosettes there).
For this Felt Rosette Wreath, you will need:
- About 1 1/2-2 yards of white felt, or about 70 rosettes
- 12 in white foam wreath
- Your 6 in circle template from the previous tutorial
- A pen, or something else to draw the circles with
- Hot glue gun
- Strait pins
- Your choice of ribbon
Make your rosettes and start gluing them on. I started on the very inside ring first.
I used strait pins to hold the rosettes to the wreath while the glue dried (which didn't take very long because it was hot glue).
Keep gluing the rosettes on working in rings and going around until you get to the very outside.
Add your choice of ribbon.
And hang it on the front door!:)
This wreath is so easy to make, and very versatile (would be really cute in pastels for Easter!), it's just very time consuming. So make sure you have plenty of time (or days) to make it!
Until next time, toodles!
