Foam wreath-- for this project I used a 12 inch wreath
7 sheets of red felt
7 sheets of white felt
5 sheets of blue felt
400+ stick pins
I was able to buy all of my supplies at my local JoAnn store.
Cut your felt into 2 inch squares, doesn't have to be exact.
Each wreath will have a varying number of felt squares. I start with cutting five sheets of red and white felt, then cut more if you need to fill in more of your wreath. Cut 3 sheets of your blue felt, cutting more when you need it.
Time to start building your wreath! Take a felt square, fold it corner to opposite corner, then corner to opposite corner again to get a "folded triangle". Pin your triangle to the wreath.
Keep folding your squares and pinning them next to each other around the wreath. I don't fill in the back of my wreath, as you see below, but I do fill in the top and the inside circle.
As pictured here in the bottom left corner I use white ribbon to hang up the wreath. Before I pin down the white section, I wrap ribbon around the wreath then cover with felt. I use about 2 yards so I have some play with how long the ribbon will be to hang it up.
Once my wreath has been filled in, I use a hot glue gun to glue down the stars onto the blue section. While this process is super easy, it can take some time! My first wreath took me over 6 hours from start to finish, this wreath took me just about three hours.
I hope this tutorial helps you make your own red, white and blue wreath! I look forward to seeing your creations.
