How To Make A Felt Balls Wreath?
If you want to make this amazing wreath the first thing you need to do is decide which color of felts you want to use. If you want a colorful wreath to hang on your door at any time of the year you can use all colors in the pack.
If you want a holiday wreath for fall you may choose to use only neutral and fall colors.
Once you have all the colors you want to use picked out you can plug in your hot glue gun and start gluing the 2 cm felt pieces all around the wreath.
Try to get the felt pom poms as close together as possible to avoid showing any white area. If you do show white do not worry because, in the end, you will use the smaller white pieces to cover them up.
You should not assemble your felt pieces in any particular order. The best way to achieve a beautiful design is through organised chaos. You can glue random balls next to each other to get a one of a kind design.If you are trying to make a pattern with your felt balls you can try your best, however, the process will take much longer.
The choice of how you glue on the balls is a personal decision.When you are gluing on the balls to the wreath you do not need to glue the balls onto the back of the wreath.
Since you want the wreath to lay flat against the door of your home you can leave the back bare. No one will see the back and this will help it lay flat. This will also help save you money on materials and save you time.
You will need to make sure the front and the upper sides and inner sides are completely covered with the felt pieces though.
To ensure that you cover the entire wreath with the 2 cm felt pieces you should lay the wreath on its back and glue the entire front. Once you have the front and some of the sides covered you will need to lay the wreath on its front.
While the wreath is on its front you can finish gliding the felt pieces to the sides of the wreath that you could not reach when it was on its back.
Once you are happy with the amount of the wreath that is covered with the 2 cm felt pieces you can begin trying to hide any white spots that you see.
You can use the 10 mm (smaller felt pieces) to hide the white background. There should not be any order to this. All you need to do is glue the smaller felt pieces onto the wreath where you see white.
After you have hidden all the white you can start working on hanging your wreath.
How To Hang Your Wreath?
To hang your wreath you are going to want to pick out your favorite ribbon. Try finding a ribbon that matches the color and style of the wreath you have just made. You may want to pick out the ribbon after the wreath is assembled to see which one goes best with your design.
To attach the ribbon to your wreath you are going to use your hot glue gun. Place a spot of glue on the upper back of your wreath and attach the ribbon to it.
Once you have the ribbon attached to allow it to sit for a few minutes so that it can fully dry. Once the ribbon is dry you can hang it to your door and let everyone see the amazing creation you made.
You can also sew in the ribbon to the wreath instead of gluing it if you know how to do it.
The great thing about making your own wreath is that you can adjust the height of the ribbon to meet your exact needs. Some doors are larger or smaller than others.
The area that you have for a wreath may be different. You can adjust the height of your ribbon and the diameter of your wreath to fit your needs.
