Felt Wreath

I made this felt wreath before Christmas and added a blue glass ornament in the middle for a little bling.

I saw the original idea on Tip Junkie with a link back to the step-by-step tutorial on The Inspired Room.

I opted to go completely with white felt and not use any of the neutral colors. I also think that my squares might be slightly smaller.

I purchased the package of white felt sold at Michael's, maybe 36"x36". It took me a little less than two packages, and I cut the squares about 2 1/2" square. There are probably about 400 on there. I started out by cutting strips in the felt and then cutting squares off. I used dental floss (waxed) to string them together.

It was time to take it down or revamp it. I opted for revamping.

I love my new pom pom makers. I can't tell you how much I love them. I made three different sized pom poms in Valentine's colors and tied them together. Then I flipped the wreath over and tied the bundle to the back where the ornament had been.

I love it!
