No-Sew Sassy Summer Wreath

Now that I’m a month past Luke’s Rocket Party, it’s about time that I update the Rocket Wreath from his party too. With summer already in full swing here in the Phoenix area, I knew I wanted to create something that had a fun punch of color that took a more girly turn. I also knew that I wanted to make it easy for *everyone* to re-create, so no-sew it is!

I present to you the No-Sew Sassy Summer Wreath! What do you think? Super cute, right? Keep reading to get the full details after the jump!

Materials:

Covered Wreath Form {tutorial here} * 3 sheets of 9″x12″ colored felt

coordinating ribbon * hot glue * permanent double-sided tape

wreath directions

Cut each of the sheets of felt to create 4.5″x12″ strips. Run a thin line of hot glue along the long side of the felt. Fold the other side over and press close. Let the glue dry for a few minutes. Cut thin fringe strips into the unglued side of the felt. 

When all of the felt strips are glued and fringed, lay them out underneath the covered wreath form so you can figure out correct placement. Because I wanted to be able to use the wreath form again another time, I used permanent double-sided tape. It isn’t actually permanent on the felt, but it does have a strong hold. Use the tape to stik the fringed pieces into place. I overlapped my fringe pieces just enough to cover the bottom of the previous piece. There is very little white showing through.

Once the fringe pieces are in place, use the tape to attach the ribbon to the back of the wreath and begin wrapping tightly. When the space between the two sets of fringe pieces is completely covered, set the ribbon in place with another piece of the tape.

To create the top bow for hanging, cut a long length of ribbon and lay it across the top of the wreath form {no tape!}. Secure another piece of ribbon to the back of the wreath and begin wrapping it around the form tightly. When you’ve wrapped the ribbon around the form 4-5 times, tape the end of the ribbon to the back of the form. Tie a bow with the original piece of ribbon that was laid across the top of the wreath.

For a little extra punch of fun, I added a Scalloped Posie from the Nest of Posies shop. I love Kellie’s work and this pretty posie was the perfect addition to this sassy summer wreath!

Here she is! I love LOVE how it turned out!
