What you need:
A Styrofoam wreath base. ( I bought mine from Joann Fabrics for like 3 bucks with a coupon so it was cheaper than using one of those pipe insulator things that young hip folks are using nowadays ;))
4 or 5 different colored sheets of felt
1 yard of burlap
pearl head push pins
What to do:
First I cut strips of burlap about 3-4 inches in width, then wrapped them around the wreath, hot glue-ing the ends of each strip on the back until the styrofoam was completely covered.
Then I cut out 2 different colors of leaves (freehand) and sewed leafy patterns on them. They are all different but I just used my straight stitch and free handed that as well.
Then I cut out random circles for the flowers. Most of the flowers just have 3 layered circles. I then put the flowers on with one pin in the middle per flower. If you push the pins in really hard it makes the flowers ruffle and pop a little more. The great thing about this is that nothing is permanent. You can take the flowers out and mess with them until you get it just right. Then I added the leaves the same way but I used regular small pins so that you couldn't see the heads.
Here's the cool part....when the season is over just pop off those pins and felt store them in a plastic bag and start a new wreath using the same base! I'm thinking felt snow flakes, or holly berries or just flowers and leaves again but in Christmas colors! I'll post pics of that one too!
Here's how to hang it. I have issues with my door because it's fiber glass with a wood paint job. The last time I used a wreath hanger it scratched up my door and when the wind blew in the middle of the night I thought some monster was knocking on my door! So... I simply hot glue-ed two felt strips on the back of the wreath (make sure they are perfectly parallel)
We had our windiest night yet last night and this baby held up like a champ. I love it that I don't have to listen to it banging on my door!
