Felt Ombre Wreath Tutorial {Burlap+Blue}

Hello, sweet Everything Etsy readers! This is Linda, with burlap+blue, and I am so happy to be here today sharing a tutorial for one of my very favorite things…

Felt Ombre Wreath Tutorial 1

This wreath combines gorgeous wool felt with one of my favorite decor trends-ombre!

It’s super simple to whip up, here’s the how-to:

Materials Needed:

  • wool felt (a 14″ wreath takes approximately 8 9×12 sheets of felt)
  • straw wreath form
  • hot glue (and lots of it!)

Step 1: Gather your supplies.

And this is the wreath form I picked up at Hobby Lobby…

Step 2: Cut your felt. I cut each sheet of felt into 6 strips (cutting lengthwise). I then cut each length into 5 rectangles…

Next, take your rectangles and cut out teardrop-shaped pieces…

Use a good pair of scissors so you can cut multiple pieces at once. When you are done, you should have a big ‘ol pile of felt goodness…

Step 3: Warm up that hot glue gun and start gluing! Since a picture is worth many words, here are two images that should help you get a feel for the layout…

I started with the white felt pieces, and glued a row across the width of the wreath. I did 2-3 rows of each color (I had 10 colors total of felt). In the second image, I had just finished up the teal portion and am about to start on the green. Gluing onto this size wreath form takes approximately 30-40 minutes.

Easy, fun and beautiful-the color combinations are endless (and so are the places in your home where you are going to want one of these lovelies!)

    Very cute… I picked up a straw wreath at Michael’s yesterday (it was $1 more than Hobby Lobby, dang!). I have never used one… are you NOT supposed to take off the plastic? LOL! It’s a mess if ya do! I needed mine white and was going to paint it (doing a tulle cover for Easter), but… now, I’m going to wrap it in white plastic.

    :)

    Ha – had to laugh about the comment of taking off the wrapping. . .(do you?)

    Love the colors and the tutorial. I almost feel like I could do it!

    Could you give me measurements for the leaves? My felt is 12 x 18, not 8 x 12 and I’m no good at math :) These wreaths are gorgeous.
    Thanks, Pat
