I wanted to brighten up the front door a bit, and since I had so much fun making my St. Patrick's Day Wreath I thought I'd come up with something for spring/Easter. It was a super quick project (once the babies were in bed that is..:) Without them it took maybe 30 minutes. First you start with a straw wreath form. Found mine at Micheal's for $8.
I left it in the plastic and covered it with wide white satin ribbon. I used white yarn for my last wreath but honestly that takes forever. The yarn looks great too, but was really time consuming. So I really suggest wide ribbon if you are short on time. I hot glued the ribbon on, then got out the felt.
I also got the felt from Michael's, and thought with this wreath I'd stick to pinks and greens. (I have two boys, a husband and a boy dog...I've got to get my pink in where I can!) The felt is around 40 cents a sheet. Take your felt and cut a wavy pattern into a long strip. Like this:
Then you roll it up into a little felt flower.
Vary the "waves" you cut in the felt to make your flowers a little different. Use hot glue to close them and then glue them to your wreath. Add a few little pom poms and cut out a few leaves and you get this:
To finish up just tie a bow and hang it from some ribbon and your done!
Quick & cute!
