With fall just around the corner, already my sights are already on cooler weather and warm color tones. There’s just something about this season that makes me fall in love with browns, yellows, and reds all over again! I made this DIY felt flower fall wreath to decorate my living room mantle with and love how easy it came together. Just remember that you can customize your wreath in hundreds of different ways by changing out the yarn and felt colors. Happy fall, y’all!
Supplies needed to make your own DIY felt flower wreath:
- Gemini Die Cutting Machine w/Starter Bundle
- Threaders 3D Chrysanthemum Flower Dies
- 3D Rose Flower Die
- 3D Daisy Flower Die
- Dimensions Wool Felt in
- 14 inch Wreath Form
- Lion Brand Oak Tweed Fishermen’s Wool Yarn
- Craft Pins
- Dual Temp Glue Gun
Wrap the yarn around the wreath form. I’m going to be honest: this extremely boring step can feel like it’s taking forever to finish! I wanted to have the strands squeezed close together but not overlapping so it took me about two days to finish. Granted, I wasn’t working on it the entire time! I suggest giving yourself plenty of time and maybe watch a good movie while working on this step?
With your wreath form completely covered, now we can move on to the fun part of this tutorial: flower making! Cut a piece of felt to fit over the flower dies and run through your die cutting machine. Repeat with all the colors.
Assemble the flowers and secure with hot glue at the base.
Continue to assemble all the flowers.
Let’s start making the wreath! I found it easiest to layout the flowers on the wreath with sewing pins before permanently attaching them to the wreath. I started by spacing out all one type of flower first and then filling in the empty spaces with subsequent flower shapes.
Once I was happy with the layout, I removed the pin from one flower at a time and then glued that flower to the wreath with a generous amount of glue.
With all the flowers in place, I decided to add some finishing leaves that I hand cut to the edges.
With the flowers securely attached to the wreath, now all I have to do is wait for autumn to arrive so that I can hang my fall DIY felt flower wreath!
Hope you enjoy making one as much as I did!
