It was about time I switched out the Valentine’s Day wreath for something a little more springy!  I got on my Snuggie, put in a movie and cozied up with some felt to make flowers for my new spring wreath.

Keeping it real, people.  This is how I craft (sometimes).

To make a flower start with a strip of felt.  I didn’t measure my felt I just cut different widths for different sizes (wider for big flowers, narrower for small flowers).

If you want to layer flowers, glue a smaller flower onto the larger one.  Lastly stitch a button to the center of the flower.  Repeat, repeat, repeat until you have enough flowers to decorate your wreath.

I picked up this grapevine wreath on sale at Joann’s and knew it would be the perfect background for some colorful felt flowers.  Use a hot glue gun to attach the flowers to the wreath.  Hang and enjoy.
