felt friday/fri-DIY: felt wreath

i have a new found love for the fuzzy stuff ... and a deep desire to organize the blog a bit more. so ... introducing FELT FRIDAYS! i'm going to do a feature on felt each friday - whether that be inspiration or {craft}ernoons. it depends how i'm "felt-ing" that week. okay that was purposefully cheesy. ;)

for today ... a {craft}ernoon: felt wreath.

felt fridays - {craft}ernoon: felt wreath - final 2

* felt (lots and lots of felt) ... i think i used 24 8x10 squares.
* pins
* Styrofoam wreath
* scissors
* patience!


step 1) trace and cut out several circles.

step 2) fold each circle in half and then in half again - would that be "fold it in quarter?"

step 3) with your pin, add each quartered circle to the Styrofoam wreath.

step 4) continue varying your quartered circles and fluffing to fill any gaps.

and ... voila:

felt fridays - {craft}ernoon: felt wreath - final 1

one fantastic felt wreath.

i have to admit that this is my favorite wreath in our apartment. {it took a little convincing for wade - he just loves fresh greenery!} i'd love to make a few more ... but i'm not sure i have the patience to do another. ha! :) it not the pinning that takes time but the cutting. plus felt tends to pull a little.

enjoy! and if you make your own - be sure to send me a link to your picture. xo.
