Instructions

  1. Small wreath01 1291736690

    Start by cutting LOTS of circles. I used an Elmer's Spray Adhesive lid as my template, which is about 2.5 inches in diameter. Once you've cut your circles (And I had to keep cutting as the project went on... I started out with about 100 or so, and definitely underestimated), you'll fold them in quarters, and pin them to the wreath form. In the end, I used at least 250 circles, and you'll use one pin for every circle.

  2. Small wreath02 1291736914

    I started with my pink circles, because I wanted the wreath to be mostly black & white, with pink accents, so I made sure all the pink was spread randomly around the wreath. Once you're done with the accent colour, continue pinning your other circles, keeping them tight, so that styrofoam gaps don't show through.

  3. I would recommend a rounded wreath instead of a flat one is because the straight pins (at least the ones I had) were way too long for the flat wreath, and needed to be snipped off the back, otherwise you'll be jabbed with pins every time you pick it up. This is VERY tough on the hand. The area under my thumb on my palm where I was holding the pliers is seriously strained/bruised this morning. Don't be like me. Learn from my mistakes.

    At the top of the wreath, I took some pink ribbon, wrapped it around once, and created a loop, then pinned it into place, then pinned some more felt circles on top to cover up the ribbon... And, it's done! Let me know if you try this project for yourself!
