Styrofoam Wreaths (-I always get the 8,12 inch but you can go up to 16 in)
Hot glue gun
4 Felt sheets
Scissors, 3 Fabric squares -1/8 of each pattern will be more than enough
BLING and or buttons: as much as your heart desires
How I did it
Before I get started on the wreath, I start to make the felt flowers since this can take the longest to make.
To make the fabric flowers, you simply cut out different sized circles and cut smaller circles inside until it looks like this and then roll and secure the end with a dab of glue
As you can see my flowers aren’t perfect here but I call it character!
Now to roll! I cut my fabric pieces straight down the middle.
Once its cut, put a line of glue onto wreath and place fabric over top and begin to roll around wreath, you will overlap as your roll which is fine.
I usually wrap around 4-5 times before I wrap the second fabric.
Now this is where the fun comes in, you can wrap as many colors, layers and textures as you want to make it your own!
Now its time to add all of the felt flowers that I burnt my hands so many times with **disclaimer** You can place them where you like before securing them with the glue.
Once they are secured add bling, buttons or maybe a monogram and VOILA!!
