So I set out to do just that. I gathered the required materials & got to work. I tried to switch it up from the one I saw online though. I wanted to make a white heart wreath. (That's why you see white felt here.) I cut up circle after circle after circle from the white felt.
I then began folding & pinning the circles to my styrofoam heart form. After filling half the heart, I thought, "Hmmm, I wonder what would happen if I added cream colored felt too?" I then cut circle after circle after circle from cream felt. Once I had removed some of the white & added the cream with it, I thought, "Ugh, this is looking too wedding-y!"
I then removed everything from the wreath form (ready to scream at this point) & went back to the original plan. Red. So I now cut circle after circle after circle from red felt. Good plan.
I give you, my felt heart wreath...
My thumb was in pain from all the excessive pinning (I should have bought a thimble) but I'm so happy with how it turned out.
In case you're wondering where I found the wreath tutorial, here's the link.
Now what was I going to do with all the white & cream felt circles that I didn't use?
I quickly put the cream ones to use...
I had this blue pot for awhile but never knew what to do with it.
As for the white circles? Well, I made a topiary, but it didn't turn out quite as I had envisioned, so I guess I still need to find a use for all the white felt circles. Any ideas?
How about you? Have you got any crafting projects under way?
