We were over at The Ribbon Retreat last week sharing this patriotic felt petal wreath – we are excited to share it here today! It brings together two things Steffany and I love: the 4th of July and wreaths! This wreath is not only super cute, but it’s inexpensive and so EASY! Remember our burlap petal wreath from last Fall? This is just a colorful felt version, and we love it!
Here’s all you need to make one of your own:
- 12 inch foam wreath form
- Two red and two white felt pieces (from The Ribbon Retreat)
- One navy blue felt piece (from The Ribbon Retreat)
- About 72 boutonniere pins
- Patriotic ribbon for hanging (also from The Ribbon Retreat)
Now it’s time to assemble the wreath!
Take one square, fold it corner to corner, then fold the two far corners into the bottom corner (see picture below:). Use a boutonniere pin to attach each felt petal to the wreath form. Layer them so they just overlap the pin from the previous petal.
We found it best to pin down one row at a time starting in the center of the wreath form. Alternate 2 red, and 2 white and then a section of 6 blue. We chose to use pins over hot glue for a few reasons; pins are seriously faster, they don’t burn your fingers, and they don’t leave glue strings everywhere. Of course, you could use hot glue if you prefer. 🙂
Last, add a row of petals around the inside of the wreath. We placed one petal between every two petals around the inside row.
We seriously love how this wreath turned out! Very simple and classic and perfect for summer!
