i love this fabric flower wreath – it’s seriously so easy to make and looks like poinsettias! the other great thing is that it will last and last. i did this DIY for Better TV and KCAL 9 news. click on the links to watch the video segments!
DIY Fabric Flower Wreath
- plain wreath shape from craft store – we used a faux evergreen wreath but you could use a dried vine wreath, a foam one or even a piece of carfboard cut in a wreath shape!
- red fabric – or any other fabric color you like. i prefer using 100% cotton fabric – not a jersey, just a flat woven cott0n like a sheet.
- glue gun and glue sticks
- cut fabric into different sized squares ranging from 2″x 2″ to 4″ x 4″
- take one square and put a dot of hot glue in the center and squeeze the fabric around the glue dot to create a a little “wonton” looking fold.
- take another piece of fabric and place a dot of hot glue in the center and put your first wonton shape in the center of the second square and squeeze again – you’re essentially layering the petals.
- repeat step 3 with another square so you have 3 squeezed wonton flowers layered as one – this will make them look full
- glue your flowers onto your wreath shape. alternate the size of flowers to get a more organic look. i got an asymmetrical look by using large flowers (made from 4″ x 4″ squares) in the upper part and filling in the rest of the wreath with smaller flowers.
- once full and lovely, hang it on a door or wall or use as a centerpiece! happy holidays!
