scalloped felt wreath


I have wanted to create one of these for quite a long time. After seeing several around blogesphere Rachel's being my most favorite, I finally had some time to raid my felt stash and get it done. Although I admit it took me several sittings to finish (my biggest tip for crafting with kids: be willing to start something you know you won't finish in the first or second sitting just do a little here and there and eventually it will get done!) i think it was worth it I love how it turned out. The colors are reading a little weird in the photo but it matches the green mirror in our entry.


 A tutorial isn't really necessary here but I will list the supplies I used:

- a foam wreath
- five 9x12 sheets of felt I bought mine HERE
- scissors
- fabritac glue or glue gun
- a card stock scallop template (I drew mine by hand)


I will mention that I used almost every square inch of felt from all five colors. And I got about twelve scallops out of each piece by folding each one in half the long way and then doing six scallops per side. I just glued the first one down and then layered each piece until I got back to the start and then tucked the last one under the first one. I finished with a white bow and that was about it!

I am sure this will get some good use for years to come!


Also I wanted to say a HUGE thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the sweet words and love you guys shared over our big news! I will confess that I was super nervous about posting about it...sometimes posting personal stuff is the hardest because I am not sure if anyone will actually care. (hows that for being vulnerable? :)) You all made me feel so good and your joy is truly helping me get even more excited over having a fourth baby and I am definitely looking forward to sharing more of the experience here too!

I hope you all have a wonderful day today and thanks as always for being a blessing to me!

  3. This wreath is perfect!
    And I just had my 4th 6 months ago.
    The 4th time is a charm.
    It's the best ever!!!!
    Pregnancy with 3 other littles was hard, but once the baby arrived, it has been really lovely.
    A lot of people needing me at the same time to be sure, but really and truly wonderful.
    Congratulations!
    Love from,

  19. For anyone making the wreath, I used sequin pins to tac felt pieces down. It was much neater and sooooo easy. Finished in one sitting. Thanks for the idea.
