Can anyone have too many Christmas wreaths? Well, I suppose so, but if you’re like me and love to hang festive wreaths throughout your home during the holidays, then you know they can get expensive. That’s one reason I love to make my own and I want some of them to be quick and easy. This felt wreath is both.
Metal gift tags
Mini clothes pins
Chalkboard Spray Paint
I made this felt wreath last year. I cut felt fabric into four long strips about 3 inches wide and wrapped the strips around the wreath form. I used straight pins to hold the felt in place. The ribbon I used for the bow has glitter on it and when I tied it around the wreath, lots of it fell onto the felt. I Instead of trying to brush it all off, I left it, because Christmas is the one time of the year for me that I like the sparkle of glitter. I had this hanging on a mirror above my mantel last season.
When I got it out to start decorating this year, I thought it needed something more. I wasn’t sure exactly what it needed though. When I saw a package of metal gift tags at Target in the dollar spot a couple of weeks ago, I knew what I wanted to do with the wreath.
Once the paint was dry, I used a chalk pen to write one number of the year on each tag. I outlined the tags with chalk dots and used a piece of multicolored yarn to string them.
To keep the tags in place, I clipped a mini clothes pin at the top, over the yarn. To secure them to the wreath, I used a clothes pin and attached the yarn to the felt.
The tags with the year gave it the extra pop I was looking for. This easy felt wrapped Christmas wreath has new life this year.
How simple was that? This year, I’m using a fresh wreath above the mantel, so this was relocated to an interior door just off of my kitchen. I used a piece of red ribbon and looped it over the wreath for hanging onto a wreath hook over the door.
I hope your holiday decorating is going well. Just when I think I’m finished, I think of something else I want to do. Do you hang wreaths indoors or on your front door only? At last count I have six indoor wreaths. Too many? Not for me!
