I enjoy making wreaths and thinking of different ways to decorate my door. I decided to make a felt wreath because I had a bunch of felt sheets left over from an earlier project. I am beginning to decorate my house for the holidays, and I feel that this wreath will be an excellent way to make my door look festive and beautiful.
I used the following supplies:
- 12 in. foam wreath
- Straight pins
- Felt sheets
- Pearl beads
I started off by cutting the felt into petal shapes.
Next, I folded the felt petals into circular shapes and pinned them around the wreath.
Finally, I tied a strand of pearl beads around the top of the wreath so I could hang it from my door.
Here is the finished wreath:
Celebrate Independence Day with these two fun and easy craft projects!
The first craft project is a wreath. This wreath is so simple to make. I used the following supplies:
- 14 in. grapevine wreath
- small paper flag
- glue gun
- patriotic bow
- red, white, and blue glitter
- chipboard letters
First, I tied the bow onto the top part of the wreath. Next, I glued glitter onto the letters. Once the letters dried, I glued them on the wreath. Finally, I added the paper flag.
This wreath took me very little time to make. The longest part was waiting on the glitter to dry on the letters.
For the second project, I made a patriotic felt mirror. I used the following supplies:
- red, white, and blue felt
- glue gun
- wooden picture frame
- 5 in. round mirror
I started off by gluing the mirror onto the picture frame.
Next, I started making the felt flower petals.( I found an excellent tutorial at this blog on how to make different styles of felt flowers.)
Then, I started gluing the felt petals and rhinestones onto the mirror and frame until the frame was completely covered.
Here is the finished product:
