Colorful Spring Felt Flower Wreath (DIY)
So I know it’s not officially spring until March 20th, but after months of cold and snow, I’m ready to welcome spring flowers and warmer weather. Spring is one of my favorite seasons and I think it’s so beautiful to watch everything re-bloom and to see all of the colors around us be brought back to life.
With that in mind, I felt inspired to create today’s tutorial. This beautiful and colorful spring wreath is so easy to create and will definitely make you excited for the gorgeous spring months ahead.
- Large Wreath Form
- Felt Sheets in Magenta, Lilac, Turquoise, Purple, and Bright Green
- Floral Pearl Embellishment
- 1 Small Strand of Yarn
- Hot Glue Gun/Glue Sticks
- Sharpie Marker
Step 1: Begin wrapping wreath with burlap, overlapping as you go to ensure coverage of the white underneath.
Once finished tracing, carefully cut out each petal and cut two thin strips for the flower center. Using scissors, cut small slits across the strips as can be seen on the dark purple strips below.
Repeat gluing process with an additional two petals to form the initial flower shape.
Step 5: Begin gluing additional petals to create completed flower shape. To create small flowers, I recommend adding an additional 5 petals for a total of 9, and to create a larger flower I recommend adding 6-7 petals for a total of 11.
Below is a completed 9 petal flower. I also glued a small lilac circle to the center of the flower for a nice contrast.
This one is a larger flower with 11 petals total.
Step 6: Repeat above process to create additional flowers in other colors. I ended up creating a total of 6 flowers.
Glue leaf shapes to each flower.
Step 8: Glue floral embellishment to side of wreath. I went with one that had pearls on it, as I felt it gave it such a romantic, girly look for this spring wreath.
Apply letters with hot glue on each pennant to spell “Spring”. I simply printed out the letters in size 72 font from Microsoft Word onto printer paper and cut to size.
Step 11: Hang and enjoy your beautiful spring wreath!
I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial and will consider making your own colorful spring flower wreath! Such a beautiful way to brighten up any entrance and welcome spring!
