white felt & feather wreath

November 26, 2013

Do you want to add a little sparkle to your holiday decor? Maybe a little glam?  This holiday wreath accomplishes both, is easy enough to make, and I am happy to say, can outlast most of the other Christmas decor.  Let’s face it, the snow is here until May (if you live in Upstate NY), so a bit of fun and sparkle might get rid of those mid-winter blues.  Indeed!

First cut out several leaf shapes from white felt, no template needed.  Cut out lots.  And if you need more as you go, cut out more.  That’s what I did.

Hot glue them on a wreath form, around and around until it is covered.  Here’s a little hint, work in the same direction going around…

Wrap a little section with some super-glittery ribbon and tuck in some feathers.  I got this ribbon at Walmart where the Christmas gift wrap is.  I also got gold, because, why not?

Hang it up where you want some shine.

Should I repeat the process with that fabulous gold ribbon?  Maybe?

    This is gorgeous. I am smitten with gold normally, but the silver you chose works so beautifully. I think I’m going to have to make one of these! I’d love for you to share at our Link it or Lump It party. http://www.delineateyourdwelling.com/2013/12/link-it-or-lump-it-party-16.html
