felt wreath tutorial {in ombre!}

This felt wreath combines gorgeous wool felt with one of my favorite decor trends-ombre!

It’s super simple to whip up, here’s the how-to:

Materials Needed:
wool felt (a 14″ wreath takes approximately 8 9×12 sheets of felt)
straw wreath form
hot glue (and lots of it!)

Step 1: Gather your supplies.

(this collection of felt came from burlap+blue sponsor, Benzie)

And this is the wreath form I picked up at Hobby Lobby…

Step 2: Cut your felt. I cut each sheet of felt into 6 strips (cutting lengthwise). I then cut each length into 5 rectangles…

Next, take your rectangles and cut out teardrop-shaped pieces…

Use a good pair of scissors so you can cut multiple pieces at once. When you are done, you should have a big ‘ol pile of felt goodness…

Step 3: Warm up that hot glue gun and start gluing! Since a picture is worth many words, here are two images that should help you get a feel for the layout…

I started with the white felt pieces, and glued a row across the width of the wreath. I did 2-3 rows of each color (I had 10 colors total of felt). In the second image, I had just finished up the teal portion and am about to start on the green. Gluing onto this size wreath form takes approximately 30-40 minutes.
