Felt Christmas Wreath on Scrap Wood (Cute Decor!)

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, it can even be a Christmas craft for kids. Wouldn’t it be a fun family project? Learn how to make it below.
