Chevron {Spring} Wreath Tutorial

Pin It
Can you tell I'm on a chevron kick right now?  I just finished this chevron vase for my Master Bedroom.

Now, it's time to show you how to dress up your front door for spring!


Wreath (I got an 18" one)
1/2 yard Chevron Fabric (I found mine at Hobby Lobby)
 Straight pins
Corsage Pins
Felt (I used 1/3 yard)


Cut your fabric into strips.  I cut mine 3 inches wide X the width of the fabric.  I used 9 strips.

I got duck cloth, because I love the rough, linen-y texture.

Next, let's cut out all the felt circles you will need.  I cut out about 50-60 3 inch circles.  Use a cup to trace around.

Time to assemble the wreath! Use a straight pin to pin your first piece of cloth to your blank wreath.

Keep wrapping your fabric around your wreath until the whole thing is covered!

Next up, let's make that gorgeous, ruffly felt stuff on the side.  
It's easier than it looks!

Start with one felt circle, and fold it in half.

Fold that circle in half again.

Your "petal" will look like this from the top:

Take the same straight pins you used when pinning on your fabric, and put one through the bottom of your petal, like this:

Pin it to your wreath.  Repeat this for ALL the circles.  
There is no set way of how close or far apart to put your "petals". 
 I pinned mine fairly close together to get more of a ruffly look.

Now, to dress it up a little, and to break up all that felt going on, randomly stick in some corsage pins.  I got the kind with a big pearl on top.  I like it fancy!


Your wreath should be looking like this:
