Scalloped Felt Wreath

I realized my pinning of wreaths on Pinterest was out of control and I needed to actually make one! I made it last month and wanted something fun and colorful before fall and Christmas colors take over. I wanted to make a scalloped felt wreath with inspiration from this post. I think I spent 30 minutes at Hobby Lobby setting down different combos of felt colors on the floor before buying the exact colors from my inspiration wreath. 





Supplies
  • 1 large foam wreath
  • 10 sheets of felt, 5 different colors of your choice
  • Extra felt for a flower or ribbon for a bow
  • Fabric scissors
  • Hot glue
1. I created my own scallop template about an inch longer than the circumference of the wreath
2. Cut about 15 scallops of each color and lay them in piles by color (you may need more, you may need less, depending on the size of the scallop template you made)
3. Start gluing the scallops around the wreath, securing in the back. Make sure you follow the correct color pattern!
4. I made a felt pom pom flower to dress it up, a tutorial can be found here

This is super cute! I LOVE it. Scalloped edges are so cute. And the color combo is perfect. Wreaths are so fun! Lucky your door is white. Our door is a nasty dark brown and not even the cutest wreath would look cute on our door. Oh well maybe the wreath will distract from the ugly door color. Haha. Pinning this wreath now!

Super cute! But I don't think I'd have the patience to cut out all those scallops by hand. My hands hurt just thinking about it, lol.
