Here goes my first attempt at a wreath! I think it turned out all right. This is rounding out the last of my fall projects. I actually did my first Halloween project last night and I am super excited to show y’all! My idea turned out way awesome!!
Now onto the Fall Wreath!
Scissors, Duct Tape, Straight Pins
Fabric(approximately 1 1/2 yards cut into 4 inch by 4 inch squarea)
Felt strips for Felt Flowers or any other embellishments you would like
So I started with a 6 foot tube of foam from the plumbing department at Lowe’s for $.97! Cut the tube in half and taped the ends together with duct tape. Next I cute some leftover brown fabric from my stash into 4 inch squares.
Then I found this great tutorial on bubble wreaths at Today’s Fabulous Finds. I took pictures as I did mine because I need practice taking pictures while making my crafts. This is more difficult than I though it would be but I am getting the hang of it!
So for each bubble take a 4 inch square of fabric and fold over the opposite corner to make a triangle. Then bring the top left corner down to the middle. Next turn over the piece of fabric holding the corners in place and bring down the last corner to the middle.
Put a straight pin into the square through all the corners. Push the pin with the fabric bubble onto the foam wreath form. Continue filling in the foam wreath form with the bubbles. Fluff the bubbles by gently pulling the fabric out on each bubble.
Continue along until you filled the entire wreath. Mine took about 105 pieces cause this is all the fabric I had left. If I had about 10 more bubbles I would have been very happy but I made do with what I had!
Finally I made these cute felt flowers! I found a great tutorial on I am Momma Hear Me Roar. Cheri made her’s for a cute autumn belt but mine worked great for the wreath. I just made the felt flower but instead of gluing I just took a straight pin with a colorful head and pushed through the middle of the flower into the wreath.
