felt wreath thumb1

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.  Felt is such an inexpensive fabric and can be cut perfectly with a die cut machine.

felt wreath


White, gray and tan felt (1/2 yard of 45†felt or 28†of the 45†felt)

20†STYROFOAM™ Brand wreath

pins (I used 1/2†but I would recommend 3/4†– 1†to make it easier to work with)

Die Cut Machine suitable for cutting felt (I have the Sizzix Vagabond Die-Cut Machine )

Sizzix Circle Die Cut


Hot Glue Gun

Scrap of fabric for bow

I recommend using a STYROFOAMâ„¢ Brand wreath.  The pins are very easy to push into it.  I have made a similar wreath pushing pins into one of those cheap dollar store wreaths and my fingers were bleeding by the end.

1.  Start by pinning the bottom of a circle on the outer edge of your wreath.  Add another circle overlapping slightly.  Keep adding alternating colors. The circles will overlap the outer and inner edge.  We will worry about that later.

2.  For the next row pin on top of your first row adding circles in between the first row so you get that pinecone pattern.

Tip: It may take a few rows to get your mojo.  I think I started over like 5 times until I got the pattern and flow I liked.

3.  You will need about 450 circles: 150 of each color.  It would definitely take a while to cut those out by hand, having one of the Sizzix machines certainly makes it quick.

4.  Keep adding circles, circles and more circles.  When you are done flip your wreath over and pin down the edges.

5.  Tear a scrap over fabric.  Loop that around your wreath.  Adhere the wreath with a thumbtack to the top of your door.  Make a bow with the scrap fabric and hot glue it in place.

Jen from Tatertots & Jello and I teamed up with Styrofoam Crafts for 6 months of wreaths.  Here are some of the past ones I’ve made.

  6. This has to be the best wreath I’ve ever seen! Seriously! Love the ribbon! Love the color combos (I would NEVER have put those colors together – BEAUTIFUL)! Don’t have a Sizzix 🙁 Wondering if there’s another way….

    Anyway…best wreath ever!

  7. Thanks Patty…..It’s my favorite too, at first the colors and the pattern weren’t working for me, but as I kept moving along it really started to take shape. I like it more the the Land of Nod one…

  8. I love the elegant simplicity of this wreath! It’s soft and the colors are understated, but still festive. Best of all, I think this non-crafty girl could actually follow your instructions and make one. Pinning it!
