What You Will Need:
You’ll need a wreath form (either foam, wire, wooden or faux twig), felt in various colors, scissors, a hot glue gun, and any additional embellishments you’d like to add, such as ribbon or beads. You can find all of these materials at your local craft store or online. Once you have everything you need, you’re ready to start crafting!
Felt Flower Wreath Tutorial:
Cut Out Felt + Make Flowers
To create your felt flower wreath, you’ll need to cut out your felt. You can use a template or freehand your flower shapes. Cut out a variety of sizes and colors to add depth and dimension to your wreath. Don’t worry about making them perfect – the imperfections will add to the handmade charm of your wreath.
- For one flower you will need 4 larger petals, 3 smaller petals and three rectangle strips.
- Create the flower center, by folding the rectangles.
- Glue the folded rectangles together with hot glue to make the flower center.
- Adhere a smaller petal around the center by applying glue just to the bottom of the petal.
- Adhere two more of the smaller petals, overlapping them slightly.
- Similarly, apply hot glue and adhere the four larger petals around the first layer of petals.
- Cut two leaf shapes from a contrasting color of felt and adhere using hot glue.
- Similarly make more flowers.

Assemble Your Wreath Base
- To assemble your wreath base, first hand cut felt leaves like we did in my DIY Felt Wreath for Fall. Play around with different color combinations and sizes.
- Use hot glue to adhere the leaves onto the base, overlapping them as you go.
- Add larger leaves and hot glue into place.
- Finally attach the flowers to the wreath base, making sure to cover any gaps or empty spaces.
Add Final Touches and Hang Your Wreath.
After all of your flowers are attached to the wreath base, it’s time to add any final touches. You can add additional leaves or greenery to fill in any gaps or add a bow or ribbon to the bottom of the wreath for a finishing touch. Once you are happy with the final product, it’s time to hang your wreath.
Use a wreath hanger or ribbon to hang your wreath on your front door, above your mantel, or anywhere else in your home that needs a touch of beauty. Enjoy your new DIY felt flower wreath!
