Ta da! That’s our finished DIY Felt Wreath, all pretty hanging on the front door! It is so colorful and pretty and I love how it turned out!

Have you ever walk through Target looking at home decor things and thinking “I could totally make that!”? This is one of those projects that actually came to life easily with craft supplies I mostly had at home! I did have to make a trip for the wreath form- but everything else is from my craft stash 🙂

  • Use a sturdy piece of cardboard to create your leaf template. I reused an egg carton to create mine and it made this DIY Felt Wreath so much easier. Check out more of my recycled craft ideas.
  • Make two or three leaf templates at the beginning. You might lose your template in all that pile of felt cut-outs 🙂
  • To speed up the felt cutting, I like to cut two or three layers of felt at once! Use a sharp pair of scissors that will make it easier on your wrist.
  • If you are not a big fan of hot glue, try using a strong adhesive to make this DIY Felt Wreath instead. Read more in this post Best glues to adhere Felt
  • Easily replace felt with paper here to create a paper wreath! You can use a paper punch or an electronic die-cut machine to cut out your leaves too then!
