DIY Felt Easter Wreath

YAY! Spring has arrived! 


I don't know about you, but I am so thrilled that winter is over. We had a long snowy winter here in VA Beach and spring could not get here fast enough for me. Spring colors are my favorite and the colors in my Easter wreath scream SPRING! I have become addicted to making wreaths, so I had to create one for Easter. And I am so pleased with how it turned out.


To create this Easter wreath you will need:

  1. Straw wreath (still wrap in it's plastic)
  2. 4 different colors of felt
  3. Scissors
  4. Crafting pins or sewing pins
  5. Hot glue
  6. Any embellishments that you love
I started out by cutting my felt into strips. Cutting the strips took me the longest. Once that was done I started wrapping my wreath. I started with my favorite color and criss crossed each color around my wreath. I secured the strips with my crafting pins. Wrapping it took no time at all, until I got back to where I started. I wanted it to look perfect, but could not get the criss cross pattern once I got back to beginning. That is where my cute embellishments came in. Embellishments are perfect for hiding spots that you don't like. I used my hot glue to add the letters, flowers and Easter eggs. 

Before you run off and make your own wreath tell me...What other creative fun crafts are you making for spring?

    1. Hi Elise! So happy you like my wreath. Cutting the strips of felt took me the longest, but after that was done it only took me 1/2 hr to wrap and decorate the wreath. When it comes to cutting the strips I suggest getting a little help. I bribed my hubby with a few extra xoxo lol!
