List of supplies:
- 1 yard of felt - for V-Day, I chose pink and a purple-ish pink for my sister's wreath. You could choose any color depending on the holiday or season you want the wreath to represent!
- Dressmaker pins
- 12" extruded styrofoam wreath (an extruded foam wreath holds pins very well)
- 3" circle template: I used a plastic cup that had an opening 3" across. You could make a template out of cardboard, but to get a perfect circle, just find something around the house that's about the right size (mug, cup, cans in your pantry)
- Pinking shears
- Glue gun
- Decorative element - mine was a glitter heart that I found at a local craft store
Step One: Use a pencil to trace circles on the felt. I cut the felt into smaller pieces to make it easier to move around, and it's easier to cut later when it's not one in-tact big yard of material.
Step Three: Fold a felt circle in half, as shown in the photo.
Step Four: Push a dressmaker pin through the bottom of the folded felt circle, about 1/2 inch from the bottom (as shown in the photo).
Step Five (Through Step 200 :)): Pin your felt folded circle to the wreath. You will only need to cover the front, outer circle and inner circle of the wreath - the back is left undone, since it won't be seen when it's hanging. Some tips when you are doing your pinning: you can turn the circles in different directions to make the wreath look more interesting. For example, with the folded part facing left, facing right, facing down, etc. It's kind of hard to describe, but you'll see when you start doing it. Also, pin your circles extremely close to one another. The idea here is that you won't see any of the white wreath underneath when you're done.
