Awhile ago, I randomly came across THIS wreath and fell in love with it. It was the inspiration behind the pom-pom wreaths I made, but the whole time I was making those, I was very much wanting to make this one. I've been curious about making those felt flowers for quite some time.
I decided I wanted to make a sort of neutral front-door-wreath to put up when it was time to take down the Christmas wreath. I wanted to make a smallish one, but they only had 12" circles at the craft store, so I had to go big.
I decided to go with a rusty-color of yarn. I used Vanna's Choice - isn't it hilarious that Vanna is the new face of yarn??? If that doesn't make all of us feel old, I don't know what does. Anyway, it is incredibly soft and I loved working with it while I wrapped that styrofoam for two whole hours.
The felt flowers turned out to be pretty easy to make. I used fabric adhesive instead of a hot glue gun (I hate hot glue guns).
I love how it turned out. In fact, I love it so much, I went and bought a bunch of nicer wool felt to make more flowers. I have no idea what I'm going to do with more flowers, but I love them lots and lots.
