. . .
I saw the tutorial for this wreath last year via Kristen at Domestifluff. I’ve been dying to make it ever since. Ain’t it right pretty like?
You’re going to need a lot of felt circles. I used at least 200, about 3 inches in diameter. I made a template out of sturdy paper, folded big pieces of felt in half and then cut them out two at a time. It was time consuming, but easy as pie. Actually, it didn’t take that long. Maybe a couple of hours in front of the television. But I plan to tell people it took me four days of straight cutting.
The tutorial over at Domestifluff is very straight forward. Basically, you make little felt rosettes out of the circles and then pin them into a wreath form. I used a white styrofoam form, and white felt. You could use any colour combination you like. I pinned the rosettes fairly close together, and changed their rotation as I was pinning to create variety. I also found it easiest to work around the wreath in rows – filling the spaces in from the centre of the wreath out to the edges, but that’s just me.
Basically, a monkey could make this wreath. (Provided it didn’t get its fur all over the white felt.) And if a monkey could do it, you probably could too.
