It was looking kind of sad, because I had stolen a bunch of the flowers off of it for another project, and never replaced them.
Then I started seeing a ton of fall yarn wreaths and really wanted one. When I made the one above, I attached the flowers with pins, rather than glue, so they’re removable.
So, I pulled picked up felt in every fall color I could find. It was on sale, 5 sheets of felt for $1, so this was a super cheap update.
Even if you ultimately plan to glue your flowers or other decorations on to your wreath, I still recommend pinning them on first so you can decide if you like the placement.
I decided that looked a little too crowded, so I moved a few of the flowers up top and like that a bit better. I got crazy and added felt leaves this time, too.
I have pearl tipped pins, so yes you can see them on the flowers, but that doesn’t bother me. You could buy pins without the tip, and they would be nearly invisible. Or, you can glue your flowers on, which is what I have always in the past, Ultimately, I would like to change the ribbon, too. So that might bring the total of this project to $2, once I find something I like.
These are all over Etsy, for like $30, but you can easily make one yourself for $10. I found the wreath forms in the dollar section at Target recently, and bought a ton of them because that’s the most expensive part of this project (usually $6 at Michaels.)
Update: The felt flowers are SUPER easy. Does anyone want a tutorial?
