I love the color combination of orange, pink, yellow, and white. So I decided to make my own felt wreath DIY using those colors. Itโ€™s bright and festive, perfect for summer!

Felt Wreath Supplies:

  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Cup with 3.5″ wide diameter rim (for tracing circles)
  • Circle punch
  • Circle Wreath form
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • 40 9×13 sheets of felt (I used 10 of each color)

Creating a Felt Wreath

Creating a felt circle wreath is simple, but definitely, time-consuming! Start by tracing circles on the 40 sheets of felt.ย  I fit 6 circles on each 9×13 felt sheet. Each circle should be 3.5 – 4 inches. Then, cut out each circle by hand with a pair of scissors. This caused major hand cramps for me! To make the process easier, use a 4″ circle punch. A punch meant for thick objects, like foam or canvas, works best. The circle punch saves time, and hands! Another shortcut would be to buy pre-cut circles. However, precut options will most likely limit your color options!

After cutting out all of the circles, attach them to a round foam wreath form using hot glue. Dab a small amount of hot glue on the wreath form. Then press the center of the circle into the glue. Using the end of a pencil to push in the circle of felt may save you from burning your fingertips! Fold up one side of the circle and place the next circle about 1 inch from the center of the first. Glue circles around the form following this pattern to create a full wreath. Eight to ten circles around the wreath form create a row. I created two rows in each color before alternating to the next color. This ensured each color stood out on the wreath and each row appeared full.

Keep gluing and gluing until the wreath is complete. This task is best accomplished while binging a show! Check out my list of recommended streaming shows on Netflix!

Accessorize the Wreath

For this summer-themed felt wreath DIY, I added a pair of sunglasses. The sunglasses felt like the perfect touch for summer. Cheap flip flops from Dollar Tree or drink umbrellas would be fun touches too! Painted unfinished wood shapes, like suns, also make great accessories!

Try this felt wreath DIY with fun colors for any season or holiday. Pink, red, and white make a perfect Valentineโ€™s wreath. Or go outside of the box with green, purple, and gold, accessorized with beads for Mardi Gras! The possibilities are endless!
