I absolutely love playing with felt! It’s one of those under appreciated craft supplies that I feel doesn’t get enough attention on a regular basis. And it’s time to change all that – let’s embrace felt Christmas decorations this year!
To start the process, I’m sharing this unique holiday wreath with you. All you’re going to need are felt scraps and a piece of scrap wood (pallet wood works too), so raid your stash for this project. Whatever felt colors you have are fine though if you want to go more traditional Christmas, choose greens and red for the berries. It’s got a bit of a modern touch, which I love. And it’s so easy, even your children can do it. Wouldn’t it be a fun family project? Learn how to make it below.
- scrap felt in various shades of green
- scrap felt in red
- scrap wood or pallet board (5.5″ x 5.5″ square)
- hot glue
- circle template (about 3.25″ diameter) such as a bowl or lid
Cut your green felt into small triangles. The size shown ranges from 1/2″ to 3/4″ sizes of triangles. Cut any size you like.
Place your circle template onto your pallet board and trace the circle shape, lightly with a pencil.
Use hot glue to attach the felt onto the board – place the green triangle shapes around the circle randomly as shown.
Keep layering until you are satisfied with your cute lil’ holiday wreath.
Cut small circles out of red felt with scissors and attach them as desired.
Display this on your mantel or on a shelf. It can stay up all winter!
It looks fantastic on the scrap wood, but I think pallet wood would be nice too, don’t you?
Have fun with this project! What other felt Christmas decorations do you love to make? Let me know in the comments!
