|

A super simple felt flower craft, today’s Felt Flower Wreath is a cute project to make with kids and looks truly magical when added to a Fairy Garden.

A cute addition to a playroom or fairy garden, this no-sew Felt Flower Wreath is super simple to make and can be customized to any color palette you'd like!

DIY Felt Flower Wreath Craft

In the original Peter Pan, Wendy Darling gave Peter a thimble to represent her kiss for him. In the cartoon version, Tinkerbell got stuck in a sewing drawer and had a thimble crash over her head.

Ever since then, I can’t think of fairies or fairy gardens without thinking of little thimbles for cups, little wooden thread spools for chairs – and of course, little hand-made felted projects for decoration.

We have a few hand-sewn projects that would be cute to add to a fairy garden, but today’s felt flower wreath is a no-sew project that just requires nimble fingers and about 30 minutes of time (in addition to some common craft supplies).

We used an embroidery hoop as the base on our wreath because it tied in that sewing theme for me, but you could use a miniature grapevine wreath or floral foam wreath base for this project if you’d prefer.

Materials to Make a Felt Flower Wreath

Tip: you can use a grapevine or foam wreath base instead of the embroidery hoop, if desired.

How to Make a No-Sew Felt Flower Wreath

To make the first flower, cut a piece of felt that is 2”x10”. Fold in half lengthwise.

On the fold, snip about 2/3” to 3/4” down towards the end and repeat all the way to the other side.

Roll slightly and using your glue gun, secure in place. Continue to roll, gluing as you go, until you reach the end. Make sure you secure the end well.

Fluff open.

To make the second flower, cut a piece of felt that is 2”x10”. Fold in half lengthwise.

Unlike the first flower, you will NOT cut on the fold, but you will cut on the other side. You will snip about 2/3” to 3/4” down towards the folded end and repeat all the way to the other side.

Roll slightly and using your glue gun, secure in place. Continue to roll, gluing as you go, until you reach the end. Make sure you secure the end well.

Fluff open.

Step 3: To make the 3rd flower, you will cut out a circle about 5” in diameter. The circle does not have to be perfect as we’re going to cut it into a spiral.

Using your scissors, cut a coil pattern, again, does not have to be perfect.

Using your glue gun, put a dot of glue on the small end and roll the felt towards the larger end, gluing regularly along the way. Be sure to secure the end well.

For the leaves, we just cut various sizes of curved diamond shapes in different shades of green and attached them to the flowers in varying arrangements.

Next is deciding on your placement of the flowers. We started in the middle with the largest flower and worked our way out from there.

Using your glue gun, attach the flowers to your wooden bamboo hoop.

Hang your wreath using a ribbon or a wreath hanger.
