A wreath form
I purchased the squares from the kids craft area in Michael's. I am such a newbie to crafting that I learned after making the wreath that the felt from the kids area is not the right kind or I should say preferred kind.
Expert crafters believe that the precut squares are more stiff. The best felt would be from the bolts in the sewing area. Too late for me though.... I learned it the harder way.
The first and the most time consuming step is to wrap wreath with the yarn.It took me good hour and half to finish it.
Now comes the fun part... making the embellishments. I had so much fun making the flowers that I went overboard. My wreath will show an overload of embellishments. I folded a piece of felt in half and then half again and then cut the squares.
Next, I free handed spirals with scissors on the felt square.
Then, start rolling from either the inner corner or outer corner and glue the end.
Coming back to the wreath.....the best part was hot gluing the flowers to the wreath. I was not too happy with the yellow. I think it is a little too strong for the yarn and God alone knows what was I thinking while making green flowers... but hey I am a newbie crafter and the excitement took over.
Check it out and let me know what you think.
