Felt Rose Wreath (Perfect for Valentine’s Day!)

Looking for a way to add some fabulous color to your home this Valentine’s Day? Don’t miss my felt rose wreath, which is adorned with a garden of beautiful handmade felt roses!

For this project, you will need…

  • 12-15 roses made with my Felt Rose Tutorial
  • Grapevine wreath
  • Spray paint
  • Raffia
  • Denim
  • Pinking Shears
  • Coordinating fabric (for the ruffled accents)
  • Hot glue gun

Directions:

To begin, make your roses using your desired color of felt. (Refer to the tutorial for my Perfect Felt Roses linked above.) Set the completed roses aside.

Spray paint the wreath form in your desired color, and allow to dry completely.

Use your pinking shears to cut 8-10 leaf shapes from your denim. Apply a dab of hot glue to one of the tips of each leaf, and pinch the end together, as shown. Now, arrange your flowers and leaves as desired on your dried wreath. At this point, I highly recommend snapping a photo of your wreath, so that when you’re adhering your flowers later on, you don’t forget exactly how your wanted everything placed.

Using your pinking shears, cut (4) 1-inch pieces of coordinating fabric that are each the width of your fabric (for most quilting cottons, this is 44-45″). Using the ruffling method I detail here, ruffle each of these strips. Wrap these ruffled strips around your wreath as shown, securing them with hot glue as you go. (You might not need to use the entire length of your ruffled pieces; trim away any excess length.) Use hot glue to adhere your roses and leaves to your wreath in the configuration you chose before, using the photo you took to help you along the way. Use hot glue to secure sprays of raffia to your wreath for added dimension, if desired.

With plenty of red roses, this is the perfect wreath to display for Valentine’s Day, but it can also be left out throughout the spring months.
