felt wreath tutorial {in ombre!}

First up, the winner of the Signs by Andrea giveaway is Gailanne, who said “You are My Sunshine is my favorite!” Please contact me, Gailanne!

Earlier this month, I had the privilege of guest posting on one of my very favorite blogs, Everything Etsy.  I shared a tutorial for creating my newest felt ombre wreaths, and I wanted to repost it here for anyone who missed it. I hope you aren’t tired of seeing these felt wreaths…everytime a holiday or event comes around, I brainstorm new color schemes-can you tell I’m smitten?

This felt wreath combines gorgeous wool felt with one of my favorite decor trends-ombre!

It’s super simple to whip up, here’s the how-to:

Materials Needed:
wool felt (a 14″ wreath takes approximately 8 9×12 sheets of felt)
straw wreath form
hot glue (and lots of it!)

Step 1: Gather your supplies.

(this collection of felt came from burlap+blue sponsor, Benzie)

And this is the wreath form I picked up at Hobby Lobby…

Step 2: Cut your felt. I cut each sheet of felt into 6 strips (cutting lengthwise). I then cut each length into 5 rectangles…

Next, take your rectangles and cut out teardrop-shaped pieces…

Use a good pair of scissors so you can cut multiple pieces at once. When you are done, you should have a big ‘ol pile of felt goodness…

Step 3: Warm up that hot glue gun and start gluing! Since a picture is worth many words, here are two images that should help you get a feel for the layout…

I started with the white felt pieces, and glued a row across the width of the wreath. I did 2-3 rows of each color (I had 10 colors total of felt). In the second image, I had just finished up the teal portion and am about to start on the green. Gluing onto this size wreath form takes approximately 30-40 minutes.

Easy, fun and beautiful-hope you love this felt wreath tutorial as much as I do! The color combinations are endless (and so are the places in your home where you are going to want one of these lovelies!)

  17. Hey Linda – I LOVE this tutorial…it is the perfect addition to a blank wall in our house! What are the blues that you use in this wreath? I’m doing turquoise accents and was looking for which color is the closest to a turquoise. It is always hard to tell with a computer screen. ;-) thanks so much for sharing this tutorial…
