Pinterest Challenge: Ribbon Wreath with Felt Flowers

With every season change {and sometimes more often}, I like to change the wreath on our front door.  Most often, this comes in the form of a ribbon wreath.
Now, spring has been here for a little while but our very brown winter wreath was still hanging out on the front door.  So, this weekend, I decided it was time to infuse a little color out there.  Of course, I stopped over on Pinterest for a little inspiration.

Then, I made mine.

Obviously, this wreath is about as uncomplicated as you can get but I love the bright colors mixed with the white felt flowers so I wanted to share.

I started with a wreath form and wrapped it in the green satin ribbon.  Note to self:  always buy an extra spool of ribbon!  I actually started this a few weeks ago but ran out of ribbon so it just sat on my table waiting for completion.

Once the wreath was wrapped, I made my felt flowers.  These are super easy and allow you to get more than one flower out of each piece of felt.
A quick tutorial:
Cut the felt into strips.  I don’t measure mine but just try to make the line straight as I got across.

Fold each strip in half and hot glue closed.  For a bigger flower, I just hot glue two strips together before I fold.

On the folded side, cut the felt part of the way through. DO NOT cut all the way through the glue portion.

Roll in a circle securing with glue as you go along.

Attach to your project and donezo!

      Awwww…you are too kind. Spring totally snuck on my this year so I didn’t get to spend any time making my rosette wreath that I had planned. Maybe for fall :)

      They are definitely my favorite to make because they are so easy and use very little felt.
