Twine and felt wreath

I was definitely feeling the late winter/early spring blahs the other day. It is hard to decorate outdoors when the wind is still whipping and it is snowing. I thought I would brighten my front door with a new wreath. All of you know how this girl loves making wreaths, right?

I have seen these wreaths all around and thought I would make my own with a twist. The materials were easy enough, foam wreath, twine, felt and glue gun. I like the twine better than the yarn version because I thought it would make it more durable and rustic.

I attached the twine to the wreath with glue and wrapped the twine all around the wreath until everything was covered. I glued every so often to make sure it stayed attached. After that was completed, I began working on the flowers. I cut circles in various sizes with 6 different colors of felt. Then I just layered the felt until it looked like a cute flower and the color combo was good.

Then glue the flowers on the wreath. You can do as many or as few as you like. There are no rules. I attached another piece of twine to the top to hang the wreath. Soooo simple, and cute! Take that expensive wreaths from the store!


  1. Very cute wreath! I have wanted to make one like this but I haven't done it yet. I love the closely wound twine with the bright flowers. Very fun! Krista @ A Handful of Everything
