Do you feel *spring* in the air yet? Even if you’ve got snow on the ground, you can’t help but get excited about the upcoming spring season! I thought that if I made a spring wreath, it might hurry up and get here!
This was not HARD to make, and only cost about $2. But it did take a few hours to finish. If you have some time to spend in front of Netflix, you should totally make this wreath while you’re watching one of your favorite shows!
I began by cutting felt into squares, and then rounded the corners so they became circles. Repeat until you get a blister. Not even kidding.
I then used my most favorite wreath form – good old cardboard! Free – my favorite!
I then folded each circle in half two times, and the hot-glued them to the cardboard:
Once I went all the way around the wreath, I folded the circles the same way, but faced them the opposite way on the wreath. I kind of “squeezed” them in to fill in any spaces as I went along. I also trimmed as I went along, because there were some areas that were taller than others.
Finally, all of the felt was on the wreath. My fingers thanked me and I sighed a big sigh of relief!
I decided that I wanted to add a little something to the middle, so I hot-glued a ribbon to the back of the wreath, and added some scrapbook paper flags to the ribbon.
Isn’t the bunting just so cute??
I just love the finished product! It’s so fresh and spring-y!
