It's around this time of year that I feel super droopy and upset that summer has left me. It's a rough transition. I went from using daylight hours to bike and hang out with friends to dragging myself home after work to a dark hallway full of dead plants and spider webs.
My hallway needed a real pick-me-up, and I've had my eye on the Felt Flower Wreath from Little Things Bring Smiles for a while.
Here's my version! (I'll spare you the photos of the dead plants and spider webs.)
What I used to make this project:
Grapevine heart wreath from Michaels
Blue and purple felt
Hot glue and hot glue gun
Disappearing ink pen
CD (for tracing)
Here's how I made the flowers:
I followed Katie's how-to pretty closely. Trace circles onto the felt using a CD and a disappearing ink pen. Cut out the circle.
Begin to cut your circle into a spiral.
The finished spiral will look like this:
Roll it toward the center to form the flower.
I used the excess felt at the end to seal the flower and make it stick to the wreath more securely.
Hot glue your flowers to the wreath! I would suggest arranging them before gluing to make sure you're happy with the color combinations and placement.
What I liked about this project:
It didn't take a lot of time, plus the supplies didn't cost more than $10!
What I didn't like about this project:
The pieces of the grapevine wreath kept falling off. I'm worried that the flowers are not going to stick!
What I listened to while I made this project: M83
What kind of little touches do you put around the house when it gets cold?
