This modern Christmas Wreath DIY (made from felt) is a whimsical addition to your holiday décor. With a few items you can make this festive wreath. Because of the way it’s constructed no two are alike. Make it as full or as thin as your taste’s desire. Because it’s made from felt, this wreath can be made in an array of colors to suit your style. While I have opted to use my Cricut Maker – you can cut the individual leaves by hand.
For this project you will need:
Fleece fun’s free pattern files (available by filling out the form at the end of the post)
3 – 5 12″ by 12″ Felt sheets in three colors (I like to get my felt here) – you can use card stock for a different look)
Small felt pompoms (like these)
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Modern Christmas Wreath DIY (Felt) Instructions:
Step 1 – Cut out the Leaves to the felt Christmas wreath
Load the free file into Design Space. I have purposely made the SVG so you can easily add or remove leaves to suit what you need.
Load the rotary blade in to your Cricut Maker and load the felt onto the fabric grip mat.
Cut out the leaves in the colors your desire.
For this wreath I opted to only have a few of the blue green leaves.
Remove the felt leaves carefully from the mat. If you are cutting by hand you will want 14 to 28 leaves of each color.
Step 2 – Make the stems to the holiday wreath
Using wire cutters snip the stems in half. It doesn’t need to be exact. From here there are two ways to make the stem – choose whichever method works best.
The first method: At the bottom of the leaf, next to the slit place a line of glue.
Then place the stem in the glue bead.
Fold the other side of the leaf over so it sits on top of the stem, covering it and eliminating the gap that at the bottom of the leaf.
The nice part about this method is that no mater which way the leaf is facing – the stem is covered.
Method two: Draw a bead of glue along the side of the slit at the bottom of the leaf.
Fold over the leaf to create the finished tucked look.
Glue a bead of glue to the back of the leaf and place the stem on it. Be mindful that you will want to make sure the the stem is not facing out when you assemble the wreath. Either method will work – go with what works for you.
Step 3 – Assemble the Christmas Wreath
Now comes the fun part. Take your wreath ring.
Take one of your stems. Roughly measure to 5 inches from the leaf.
Allow that section of stem to be free from the wreath and wrap the rest around.
Slowly continue to add stems of various lengths and colors. Find your rhythm with it and take your time. You can always go back and add more too.
Once you’ve added all your leaves glue on a few pink and red pompoms to finish the DIY Christmas Wreath!
