Fall Wreath Tutorial

Pin It
Fall is coming!  
At least, in our 100 degree heat, I keep telling myself that!

I made an easy fall wreath, and wanted to share.

  • Wreath form (I use an 18" one)
  • Brown Yarn
  • Felt in fall colors
  • Scissors
  • Glue Gun
  • Corsage Pins (found at Hobby Lobby)


First, wrap that wreath.
I found this great, THICK, yarn at Wal-Mart of all places!

Just wrap around and around.  This step will take you a while!

Next up, make some felt flowers.

First, trace a circle on your felt.  
My circles were about 3-4" across.  You can do any size.

Cut out your circle.

Next, start cutting your circle into a spiral. 
 This does not need to be perfect, or precise.

Keep cutting.....

Once you have your spiral, start rolling!  
Start from the outside edge, like this.

Roll, not too tight, but not too loose.

Should be looking pretty cute by then end!

Roll it all the way until the end.  
The very inside part of the spiral is like the "foundation" you will glue your flower to.

Hot glue your flower to the the "tail".

Now, make a ton more of these flowers!

To attach them to the wreath, use a corsage pin.  

For the multi-colored ones, just roll 2 colors of felt together.

Told you it was pretty easy :)
