Is it too early to start decorating for Halloween? I usually say September 15th in this house, what say you? This Halloween felt flower ruffle 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.
Like yesterday’s flower felt headband tutorial I used my Sizzix die cut machine to help cut out all the flowers.
I am telling you – put this on your crafting Christmas list.
There are so many things you can make with it!
- STYROFOAM Brand 18″ wreath form (I know they are pricier but if you get the cheap ones you will never be able to push the felt in without cracking it or killing your hands)
- 3-Piece Foam Tool Set1 1/2 yards orange felt
- Black and white plaid fabric
- Sizzix Die cut machine (I have a Vagabond Die-Cut Machine)
- Eileen Hull’s Flower Layers #9 die
- Head pins
How To make the Halloween felt flower ruffle wreath
Start by cutting strips of orange felt into rectangles the size of the die.
I sent 4 layers of felt through the Vagabond machine at a time.
Then just stack your flowers on top of each other biggest to smallest.
You will have the three flowers nestled on top of each other.
Using the “tuck and scribe” tool that comes in the foam tools pack squeeze the middle of the flower stack into the wreath digging into the foam to make it grab the felt.
Do this over and over again until the entire wreath is filled.
If there is any foam showing just stick one of the petals in to cover it.
For the fabric hangar I used a 5″ piece of plaid fabric I had in my stash and wrapped it around the wreath securing it to the top of my door with thumbtacks.
For the bow I cut a 3 1/2″ wide strip and then tied it into a bow.
I used head pins to tack the bow into place and didn’t want to do anything permanent because I plan to change the fabric out for Thanksgiving to some autumn colors.
You could obviously add more to bling it up a bit but I love the simplicity of the ruffled orange flowers with the plaid bow.
Here is my Spider Infested Halloween wreath I made last year if you need more wreath inspiration.
