Craft: How to Make a Spring Burlap Wreath with Felt Flowers

craftsdecor & DIY

This burlap wreath is so perfect for Spring! Heck, it’s perfect for any season since the felt flowers are interchangeable! Don’t you just love it when you have one piece that can serve you well no matter the season? I sure do!

I’m in love with how this wreath turned out! I knew I wanted burlap and I wanted it to be versatile and interchangeable. So I concocted this little beauty! Here’s how I did it:

How to Make a Spring Burlap Wreath with Felt Flowers

Materials:

  • 14” foam wreath form
  • Approx. 1 yd of burlap (a great source for burlap is Burlap Fabric)
  • Pearl headed pins
  • Felt
  • Ribbon
  • Hot glue gun

Directions:

I started by wrapping my wreath form with 2.5” wide strips of burlap (I cut along the length of the burlap so the strips were relatively long.) It took about 3 strips to get all the way around. I literally just pinned them in place. I didn’t use hot glue because it comes through the holes in the burlap easily and I didn’t really feel like burning myself!

Then I cut a jillion 4x4 squares of burlap. Some squares were bigger, some were smaller. It doesn’t have to be perfect at all (my kind of project).

Next, I took the squares one at a time and fold them in half, and then in half again.

 

Then I simply used a pearl headed pin to pin them into the wreath form.

And fold and pin, and fold and pin, and fold and pin. Forever and ever amen. Until you’re all done! It really didn’t take that long.

To make the flowers, get out your felt and glue gun!

You need to cut the felt 2.5” wide along the length of the felt. Then, take your strip of felt and fold it in half. Hot glue the long edge where your fold meets together.

*Hint: To make bigger flowers, glue 2 folded strips together.

Then you want to cut little “notches” along the side that is not glued. Be sure not to cut all the way through the strip. You don’t have to be precise when cutting these notches either.

It will look something like this when you’re done:

Then you just start at one end, add a dab of glue to the end, and start rolling it in.

Keep rolling, adding some hot glue along the way, until it's all rolled up. Secure the final end with a dab of hot glue. And then you’re all done!

I wanted this wreath to be interchangeable, so I glued little clips to the back of the flowers and I just clipped them on to my burlap wreath!

Ignore the yellow fuzz….a piece of yellow felt got stuck to the hot glue.

Then, I just added a cute little yellow polka dot ribbon I had on hand and hung her up!

How have you started decorating your home for spring? What are your favorite pieces?
