Hi there! I’m so excited to be sharing this project with you and hope you find it easy to follow along with! We will be making a Burlap Wreath with Felt Flowers that looks something like this:
For this project I used:
- 1 yard of burlap fabric – 45″ wide
- 1/4 yard each of three coordinating cotton fabrics
- Glue and a glue gun
- 1 Straw Wreath Form
- Felt, thread and adornments for felt flowers
What I did:
Using the free template I found here and following the tutorial I found here, I created three large felt flowers in one of my coordinating cotton fabrics. I skipped the beading for the center of the flower and used burlap. Here is a closer look at my flowers:
For the wreath, I began by cutting my burlap into long 3″ strips. I wound the burlap around the wreath frame, in one direction, overlapping as I went, using glue to secure the ends. Here is a picture of the beginning of this step.
Next, I looped my ribbon through the middle and pulled up to the top, tying off to keep it out of the way – and secured the loop with glue – the ribbon length will depend on how far you want your wreath to hang, but mine was about 40″ in length.
Next, I cut squares of 3×3″ from the burlap – these would become my ribbon edge! I did not count the number of squares I used, but cut them as needed – I would cut a 3″ strip, fold it over, and cut the squares from the strip. I used approximately 1/2 yard for this step. Folding each square in to a triangle, and then again in to a triangle, I glued each corner to the center of the covered wreath form. I repeated this step until I had gone all around the form.
