How do you make a wreath with felt strips?

Check out the easy steps for this felt wreath DIY:

strips of felt with scissors

Step 1 –

To begin the Rainbow Felt Wreath, gather all supplies. Remove the label from the embroidery hoop.

Loosen the screw on the embroidery hoop and separate the rings to create two wreaths. Organize all the colors of the felt scraps.

Use ALL the colors that you have on hand or purchase one sheet of 10-12 different rainbow colors. These felt craft sheets are under fifty cents each at the big box craft stores.

Step 2 –

For this fall wreath DIY, use the 9″ width of the felt craft sheets, and make a stack of bits and pieces that are long enough. Randomly cut the scraps and/or the felt sheets into strips, some skinny and some fat, with scissors.

For this 10″ hoop cut approximately 100 strips. This is a great task to complete while watching television.

Step 3 –

Start tying the strips felt around the embroidery hoop in double knots. Use the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock marks as a starting point. This is a great activity for the kids to help with.

Step 4 –

Continue working around the entire hoop, pushing the strips together to get as many on as possible. The more felt strips tied onto the hoop the fluffier the wreath will be.
