Playful Whirl Felt Wreath

Give piping a playful whirl on circles of colorful felt for this fun wreath.

Materials:

  • Compass
  • 15x15-inch piece of lightweight cardboard
  • Felt scraps: green, mint green, red, sky blue, light turquoise, dark turquoise, and pink
  • Pinking shears
  • Fabric glue
  • 1/2 yard of lightweight velveteen: hot pink
  • Rotary cutter, cutting board, and ruler
  • Loop turner
  • Glue gun

Instructions:

1. Using a compass, draw a 10 1/2-inch-diameter circle onto lightweight cardboard. Draw an 8-inch-diameter circle in center and cut out ring.

2. Using a compass, draw a 3-inch, a 2 1/2-inch, a 2 1/4-inch, and a 2-inch circle onto lightweight cardboard. Cut out the circles to use as templates. Use a pencil to trace templates onto felt, tracing different size circles on a variety of colors. Cut out felt circles inside traced lines using pinking shears. Use fabric glue to glue felt circles together in combinations of two or three circles, varying colors and sizes.

3. Cut velveteen strips on the bias. To find bias line, fold one corner diagonally across fabric; finger-press fold (pressed line is the bias line). Using rotary cutter, cutting board, and ruler, cut 1-inch-wide bias strips from velveteen.

If you need to piece strips to get desired length, lay strips at right angles to each other with right sides together. Pin and sew together strips, using a 3/16-inch seam allowance. Open and press seam allowance flat. Trim away fabric that extends beyond bias-strip edges.

Note: Coils are made from bias strips measuring from 13 inches to 20 inches long. Make a 36-inch-long bias strip for the wreath bow. All measurements include an extra 2 inches for turning.

4. Fold bias strip in half lengthwise with right sides together. Sew together along the long raw edge using a 1/4-inch seam allowance. Trim seam allowance. Using the loop turner, turn piping right side out.

5. Hot-glue end of piping to center of an assembled felt circle. Coil and hot-glue piping around the center until coiled piping circle is desired size; trim excess piping.

6. Hot-glue finished circles to wreath ring. Tie piping bow, and hot-glue to wreath.
