Directions to Make a Felt Strip Wreath

The instructions for this are pretty basic. For this reason, the most beginner of crafter will surely be successful.

Step One

To get started making the felt wreath, gather all materials and supplies. Remove the labels from both the embroidery hoop and the felt. Loosen the screw on the embroidery hoop and separate the rings if you want to create two wreaths. Take a few minutes to organize all the colors of the felt scraps. Use ALL the colors that you have on hand OR purchase felt sheets in at least 10-12 different colors. Good News – Kunin Basic felt craft sheets are under fifty cents each at the big box craft stores.

Step Two

For this wreath, use the 9″ width of the felt craft sheets to create a stack of pieces that are at least this length. Randomly cut the scraps and/or the felt sheets into strips, some skinnierand some wider, with fabric scissors. For this 10″ hoop, approximately 100 strips will be needed. This is a great job to complete while watching your favorite movie.

Step Three

Next, tie the strips felt around the embroidery hoop in double knots. Use the 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock marks as a starting point. This will help determine where colors should be filled to create a good mix.

Step Four

Continue working around the hoop, squishing the strips together to get as many as possible tied on. The more felt strips tied onto the hoop the fluffier the wreath will be.

Step Five

This is the last and final step. To complete the Felt Strip Wreath, trim any long ends with scissors. Tie a ribbon or twine hanger at the top of the embroidery hoop.

Another Great DIY Felt Craft

I am going to say this again.  Crafting is just a great idea.  It is proven that crafting can be really good for mental and emotional health.  Studies show that making and crafting can lower anxiety.  Another benefit to crafting is that it creates connection.  When we make things and give them to others, we spread kindness and love.  Here are my top ten reasons to craft with kids, and I mean kids of all ages.

  1. Mental Health Benefits – Crafting puts me in a good mood.
  2. Self Expression – Crafting allows me to express myself.
  3. Education and Growth – I learn new skills by making things.
  4. Connection – Crafting connects me others through workshops, classes and gifting.
  5. Decor – Through making and crafting, I can totally customize every aspect of my decor.
  6. Gift Giving – Gifts is totally my love language.  I love to make handmade gifts.
  7. Offline Time – Crafting keeps me off of my phone and social media. We all know this can be beneficial. Of course the felt strip wreath is fun to make while watching tv.
  8. Income – Because I craft and sell items that I make, I have an additional income source.
  9. Fun – I like to have fun and to me, making things is fun.
  10. Socializing – Attending events where crafting is a part gets me out and around others with like minds.
