American Flag Felt Wreath – Do it Yourself

American Flay Felt Wreath

I’m so so excited……I finally…..actually made something I saw on Pinterest!!!!!!!…….With 4th of July just a couple of weeks away……I decided when I saw this beauty, I was going to try and make it………and……I’m so glad I did………I had pinned it over a month ago…….

You will need the following supplies…..I found everything at Hobby Lobby……

1 styrofoam wreath ( I used a 19 inch)

8 or more felt sheets of each color……. cranapple, beige and royal blue…..

(I wanted to used country colors but you can used bright red, white and blue instead……)

small package of different size wooden stars

1 can of Beige spray paint

box of straight pins with balls on top……at least 200……

1 stick of hot glue and hot glue gun for attaching stars….

3

First I sprayed 5 large, 3 medium, and 8 small stars with beige paint……

While the stars were drying I started on the circles…..

I cut a 3 inch circle out of card board as my pattern to cut the felt out…..

Not sure how many circles I cut out but it was a lot more than what is shown in the picture….

Before I started adding the felt….I used a marker to mark where I wanted the colors to start and end all around the wreath…..so the colors would be even all the way around…..

then I folded the felt circle once and then again…..like shown above and inserted pin into end of felt at the point and then pinned it to the styrofoam wreath……..continue to pin folded felt circles keeping them close together as possible……the closer the fuller the look…..

I continued all around…filling in the colors……

then I hot glued the stars on the blue area……
