If you're on Pinterest, there's no doubt that you've most likely seen a spring wreath or two floating around. I've seen them too and last night, I decided that I wanted to make my own. I went with materials that I already had on hand and kept it relatively simple.
Here's what I did:
First, I used the largest bowl I own to cut a circle out of cardboard. I traced another smaller circle inside of that, and then cut that one out.
I wrapped burlap around my wreath shape, securing it with a touch of hot glue at either end.
To make flowers out of felt, I cut out 5 circles, using a drinking glass for the circle pattern.
Hold the circle in your hand and then fold it in half.
Fold it in half again.
Glue the circle that's folded into quarters down onto one of the other circles. Next, glue down the other 3, the same way. So, for each felt flower, you'll need 5 circles, one for the base and then 4 to be hot glued on.
For the leaves, I did nothing fancy. Basically, I just cut out a leaf shape, free hand.
