Wreath made from Felt Circles

Pinterest.....it's slightly addicting isn't it? A few weeks ago, I saw an idea on there for a cute wreath, made from felt. I decided to make my own version so, off to JoAnn fabrics I headed (with a coupon in hand, of course). I bought about a yard and a third of red felt. 
A dear friend of mine had a ladies craft night. Basically, I took up most of her living room floor with my giant sized piece of felt. I traced circle, after circle, after circle. For my circle pattern, I used a roll of duct tape. See, duct tape really is helpful for everything! 

What you'll need:
•One 12" Styrofoam wreath
•LOTS of pins (I used most of a container that had 500 in it)
•Sharp Scissors
•1 1/3- 1 1/2 yards of felt
•A pattern to use for tracing your circles

 Lots and lots of circles. 
 Next, I cut out all of those circles. It took a VERY. LONG.TIME. 
I think tracing and cutting the circles took about 4 hours (give or take) so, I'm glad I worked on this at a friends house. Really, it was the perfect project to do on a ladies craft night. 
 After all the circles are cut, the fun starts. Take a circle, fold it in half. 
 Next, fold it in half again. 
 Stick a pin through it and then attach it to your foam wreath. Pin your pieces of felt all over the wreath until there isn't any white showing. I did a small area at a time and worked my way around. Please forgive my pink fingers. I was spray painting before I started this project and I tend to get a little messy. 
 This is the back of my wreath, when it was (finally!) done. 
 The front. 


If you have any questions about this project, feel free to ask! Although it took a long time to finish this wreath, it was really fun to do and I love how it turned out. 
Today I'm linking up with one of my very favorite crafty/frugal sites!
