Yarn Wreath with Felt Flowers



I have been OBSESSED with felt flowers this year!  I love them ALL!  I have also fallen in love with all the different DIY wreaths so when I came across some blogs showing wreaths with felt flowers, I HAD to make one (okay maybe more than one...).




When buying the felt all the colors I was drawn too were actually not felt, they were fleece.  So I ended up making most of the flowers out of the fleece.  The little white one on the top picture is felt.  I really can't tell the difference in material these flowers.  I did find a difference when I made a flower like this out of fleece, it was just not firm enough.  The yarn is soooo soft!  It is Bernat Baby Blanket.  I actually wrapped it twice around the form because I wanted to be able to squeeze it!  The form is 10 or 12" from the dollar store.  The leaves are felt that I airbrushed with several green Copic markers and then die cut with the leaf die from Spellbinders.




I hung them above the fireplace.  I am thinking that I need to turn one so that the flowers are not going in the same direction... What do you think?
