Fabric and Felt DIY Fall Wreath

Hey Y’all! I hope each of you that went trick-or-treating last night had an awesome time! Our house was a little under the weather, so my sweet daughter had candy duties { and loved every minute of it! }. Earlier this week, I shared a little sneak peek on Instagram of my Fabric and Felt DIY Fall Wreath

I am so in love with how it all came together! It had been on my “to-do” project list for a while. The oranges and greens are my absolute favorites! I always enjoy combining natural elements with fabrics and felts for a warm look. Throw in a little burlap ribbon and perfection!

I also like to layer my wreaths. I don’t like having a large opening in the center, and have found that if I use a smaller wreath form and place it on a larger wispy twig wreath, I get the fuller look I prefer. I did this layered look on my Wood Monogram Twig and Burlap Wreath  and our Glittered Fall Leaf Wreath. I pick up the twig wreaths at Michaels and use my coupon. The other wreath form on this project is a simple straw wreath form wrapped in fabric.

Ok so I might be a little in love with the felted green leaves. Here is the secret to making them… they come ready made in a package of multiple colors at Hobby Lobby or you can find them HERE.

I made 2 camelia looking flowers and 2 mum looking flowers. Believe me, they are super easy to create. It only took 2 pieces of the $0.50 felt sheets. I chose a deep orange. I followed tutorials from The Crafted Sparrow and they were done in no time!

The burlap ribbon I placed under the diy felt flowers added just the right touch. I folded each piece like a banner and notched the ends. Seriously, burlap makes everything better, don’t you think?!

I confess that I am a bit of a fabric hoarder. I can’t seem to pass up a fabulous remnant of great fabric. I found this herringbone/chevron deep orange and cream fabric last fall, and have been saving it for the right project. It is actually suiting material. I loved the colors. And yes, before you ask, my porch is covered but I realize I need to bring my wreath inside in bad weather to help it last longer, since I used fabric and felt. But, I just couldn’t help myself!

I have enjoyed this porch so much! It gets super hot here in South Carolina, so our family enjoys our porch most in spring and fall. We even get little bird’s nests in our ferns each spring.

The orange colors in this fall wreath will carry me all the way from Halloween to Christmas. The wispy twig wreath underneath the fabric brings that organic touch to the project and I just adore it!

Don’t you love it when a project comes together just as you had imagined it? Yea, me too! This is one of those projects for me. I smile as I drive up to my home and see this bright and happy wreath on my front door.

I really love crafting, doing DIY projects and seeing the fruits of my labor. As we head into the Thanksgiving season, I am truly thankful for the opportunity to do something I love, and for you all who are walking this journey with us.

    I love everything about your wreath. The colors, the fabrics and felts, and the twiggy wreath layered behind all come together beautifully. Those felt flowers are gorgeous! I used fabric on my fall wreath this year too, so I’ll be hauling it inside during inclement weather also. Hope you have a great weekend!
    Blessings,

    Love your felt flowers! Thanks for the leaf tip~I could spend hours poking around in Hobby Lobby, so I will be looking for those. Your wreath looks fabulous and your entry couldn’t look more welcoming and perfect for fall. Sigh, I have work to do~
