DIY Holiday Wreath

Wreath DIY Holiday Wreath

A few weeks ago I saw the most adorable fabric wreath at a local art fair. The artist had hand sewn an intricate collection of different types of fabric flowers, branches, and leaves. I would have scooped it up right then but the price tag was a little out of my holiday decor budget at $275. I got to thinking and decided I could easily make a simpler DIY version with a few items from Michaels.

Here is what I picked up:

  • 1 foam wreath
  • 1 bundle of yarn
  • 5 sheets of felt
  • 1 bag of assorted feathers
  • hot glue gun + extra glue sticks

I chose a multi-colored yarn but you can use solid colors or even switch off between a few colors to create stripes. The flowers from the wreath at the art fair were quite complex and I fall among those who don’t know the first thing about sewing. So if your like me, there are plenty of tutorials around the internet on how to make fabric flowers. I used this one from Skip to My Lou.

After I rolled all my flowers, I made a few fabric feathers to accompany them. To do this I just glued two pieces of fabric together and cut a long leaf-like shape out of it. Then I made little cuts in the sides to make it look more like a feather. If you would rather use a template, 100 Layer Cake has a some great ones along with step-by-step instructions.

Finally, I just couldn’t resist adding the beautiful cast metal letters I scored for 50% off at Restoration Hardware. They are a little heavy so I had to make sure the wreath was anchored securely to the wall.
