Make It Do Monday - Felt Flower Wreath

Monday, November 07, 2011

I've wanted to make a wreath for our door for ages. In the spirit of Make It Do, I hoped to make a wreath that I could change with the seasons and one that would use up some of my extras. And this one does just that!  
I wrapped strips of linen scraps I had laying around the styrofoam wreath form (which I salvaged from my mom's craft project reject pile).  Then, using my beloved Accuquilt cutter, I made a bunch of felt flowers. I chose black for Halloween but my plan is to change them out (and use up all my scraps!) for each holiday and season.  Just imagine red + silver for Christmas and yellow + gray + turquoise for spring.  Working on changing it out for Thanksgiving now - the Go!Baby fabric cutter makes it super easy.....
...plus Jack loves using the machine to crank them out!

 I used the Funky Flower die cut to make about 20 flowers. I pinched each flower, adding dimension and then pinned in place.  The pins make it easy to move the flowers around and eventually change out when I'm ready for something new!

It is beautiful. I feel inspired as I've been meaning to make a wreath for a few years. I love that you can change it with the seasons

I think I might need to get that die for my Go Baby.
