Aqua Striped Spring Wreath with Felt Flowers

It’s hard to believe that I haven’t made a wreath since the beginning of winter, when I changed my Fall Burlap Wreath into a winter one.  But today, I whipped up this cute and colorful Spring wreath.

Now when I say “whipped up”, I mean it was very easy but let’s be honest… it takes (quite) a few minutes to wrap yarn around a wreath form.  But it is simple mindless work.

Recreate this look easily using simple materials:

  • wreath form
  • two colors of yarn
  • felt
  • dress pins
  • hot glue
Start wrapping the first color of yarn around the wreath form.  I tie it in a knot first and then wrap over the knot ends.  After a bit (I didn’t measure), add a small stripe of the other color yarn.  Then, continue again with the first color.  I did cut the white yarn, but I left the aqua yarn in one piece and just looped it over the white in the back to avoid all the cutting and tying.
The flowers are easy to make.  Cut a circle out of felt and cut a swirl in it as shown below.  Then, starting with the outside end of the circle, roll it towards the middle.  Once you get to the middle, the little “knubby” left in the center will form your flower base and cover the bottom of your flower. Experiment with size of circle and width of your swirl to achieve different looks.
Use dress pins to attach them to the wreath and act as the flower center.  I also freehand cut a few green leaves and attached them under the flowers (I stuck them on the pin behind the flower).
And that’s all there is to it!  I love how bright and cheerful it looks – even if the ground is still covered with snow!  What about you – has spring sprung in your neck of the woods yet?

  7. Perfect for spring and summer! Great colors! I have to make a colorful wreath for my door so thanks for sharing! It might look a little funny because we still have quite a bit of snow on the ground in central MN but maybe it will make it go away! Thanks again!

  10. That’s really cute! I pinned the rolled felt flowers … those would look so cute on anything! Thanks for sharing with us at Project Inspire{d}.

  11. So cute! I love using the pins to attache the flowers–I’ve made these out of paper and trying to glue the flower to the little bottom part doesn’t always work well…the pins would be perfect! Thanks for the tip!
