Are things warming up where you are? We still have a ways to go before winter is over where I live. To combat these last, lingering, gray winter days, I designed this darling Spring Floral Wreath, to liven up my decor and help me be patient until spring really does arrive.
Spring Fabric Floral Wreath Tutorial
- fabric for flowers and to wrap hoop – I am using Petals and Pots fabric from Riley Blake Designs
- wool blend felt in colors that coordinate with your fabrics- *note: do NOT use acrylic felt for this project as adding the heat to fuse the fabric to the felt will melt it.
- Heat n bond EZ-Print Featherlite sheets
- Wood wreath form *note: you could also use a wire form, an embroidery hoop, or arrange your flowers in a wreath shape on a frame
- Spring Wreath Pattern
- hot glue gun and glue
Prepare the Flowers:
- Begin by printing off the pattern onto the HeatnBond EZ-Print Sheets. Cut out around the pattern pieces leaving a small margin. *note: depending on the size of your wreath, you may need to print off more than one copy of the pattern.
- Fuse the pattern pieces onto the wrong side of the fabric for the flowers and leaves. *I chose to leave the flower 1 accent pieces as just felt, so do not fuse these pieces to the fabric, instead fuse to the felt color of choice.
- Cut out all of the pattern pieces along the lines and remove the paper backing.
- Fuse the fabric pieces to the coordinating felt.
- Cut out around the fabric pieces leaving a slight margin of felt around the pattern pieces.
- Use hot-glue to attach the flower pieces together.
Finish Spring Floral Wreath:
If desired, wrap your wreath form with 1 1/2″ wide strips of fabric. Use hot-glue to adhere to ends of fabric strips in place.
Arrange flowers and leaves around the wreath form as desired. Use hot-glue to attach to the wreath form. I also glued a small loop of ribbon onto the back of my wreath form for hanging.
Now, all that’s left is to hang up your wreath and wait for those warm spring breezes to start flowing through your windows! Happy Crafting friends! xoxo, Amy
