I might be obsessed with making felt wreaths. I just love playing with felt in the fall. I love the texture and weight of it. And it just seems right to make a zillion felt wreaths. They make great gifts and are very simple to make especially if you have some sort of die cutting machine. This week I am going to talk about the difference between the Silhouette machine that I use so often, and the Sizzix machine that I have been playing with lately. What I love about this felt flower wreath is that you can customize it for the season by changing out the flowers. All you have to do is remove the pins.
Is it too early to start decorating for Halloween? I usually say September 15th in this house, what say you? This wreath could easily be made for any season with a different color felt and ribbon. It reminds me of those circle ruffle wreaths that were so popular (and still are!) are couple of years back. I love the ruffle-y texture that the flower shape gave on this one.
My daughter is obsessed with headbands. It probably has to do with the fact that I bought her a bunch of headbands a year ago and she broke all of them and I told her she wasn’t old enough to wear them because she couldn’t take care of them. Well that just made headbands the forbidden fruit. So a few months back I bought her another one and told her she can’t stretch them out or wear them on her belly (yes, true story!) and now she won’t take them off. I will put her hair in two braids and five minutes later she has popped a headband over it.
I fell in love with the simplicity of the felt scalloped wreath from Land of Nod. It’s neutral colors lend itself to match any décor and any season. However, I love that it kind of resembles a pine cone which makes it perfect for the fall season. I knew it would be easy to replicate for a fraction of the price.
