Wreaths are one of my very favorite things to craft. Not only are they fun to make, but they look so great hanging not just on the front door, but anywhere I need a little color and texture. Seriously, I probably have about five wreaths on or over various surfaces of my home.

And, now, I have one more to add to the collection! This DIY felt wreath is so versatile . . . choose any colors of felt that you’d like, and any embellishments that your heart desires!

DIY Felt Wreath

Gather These Supplies

  • Felt sheets
  • Wreath form
  • Embellishments (I used paper butterflies)
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Ribbon – length for hanging
  • Scissors

Step 1: Take your felt, and cut lengths that are approximately 6″ long x 2″ wide. I used 26 for my 12″ wreath form, but you’ll use more or less depending on how far apart you space them.

I stuck with a blue, green, and gray color palette. Wouldn’t this wreath look great in oranges, yellows, and reds for fall? Or maybe lots of bright colors for a birthday? The color combinations are endless!

Step 2: Wrap a length of felt around your form, and hot glue it closed on the back of your form. Unlike other felt wreaths I’ve created, this one is really quick to make! It took about 15 minutes to glue all the felt to the wreath.
