I saw this crazy cute wreath on Pinterest from See Vanessa Craft and knew I had to make it. Last year I made my yarn ball wreath which I absolutely love and do not want to replace so I made this as a Christmas gift.
Here's what you'll need:
Foam wreath form
burlap (about 1 1/2 yards)
felt for flowers and BHG pattern
hot glue and gun
You'll need to cut your burlap into 4inch X 4inch squares. Here's how I did mine...First, I measured from the edge over 4 inches. I then pulled one thread of the burlap out at that measurement. Then I measured over 4 inches from there and repeated until I was complete across the entire piece of burlap.
Next, I turned the burlap piece 90 degrees and repeated the steps from above
Now I had a grid where I could easily cut my precise measured pieces. Once that was done, it's to start assembling the wreath. Here's a video to show you how I did mine.
I took left over squares and glued them along the back of the wreath form just as suggested in the original tutorial I saw. However, I would suggest just wrapping the burlap around the wreath at the beginning. But either way, it works.
To make the pointsettias, visit Better Homes & Gardens to get the pattern and instructions for assembly. Once I made mine, I hot glued them into place. Then I added a small ribbon for hanging that I pinned into place.
This is the finished wreath:
Instead of using more felt for the centers of the flowers, I just used some silver fabric paint.
I hope you liked this tutorial. After all the measuring and cutting, it's actually pretty simple to put together. If you try this one, be sure to let me know! Thanks for stopping by!
