I have been making wreaths covered in felt rosettes for a few months, and I love them. But, I was trying to think of a different felt flower that would be cute on a wreath. So, I decided to attempt it using this little puff-like flower. (This Felt Flower Tutorial is linked to pic if you are interested.)
I used a little smaller strips than I used in the tutorial, about 4 x 9 because I was covering an 8 inch wreath and wanted the flowers a little smaller.
The first thing I did was cover the 8 inch straw wreath in felt by wrapping and hot gluing felt strips.
Next, I made the felt flowers. I made all but one of them using gray and one in yellow.
Finally, I used hot glue to attach all of the flowers to the wreath.
I adore this wreath, but I must admit it did not turn out the way I envisioned it. I thought that you would be able to distinguish each of the little flowers. But, instead the flowers just look like loops. Oh well, I am still in love! Maybe next time I will try spacing the flowers a little further apart, or maybe not.
