Baby Girl Wreath

We will be welcoming a new baby cousin into the family in just a few weeks (squeal!!!). I wanted to make something special for her nursery and I've been on a bit of a wreath-making kick lately, so.......

What You Need:
  • Wreath Form
  • Ribbon
  • Straight Pins
  • Felt
  • Wooden Letter
  • Needle & Thread
  • Mod Podge, Hot Glue
How You Make It:
  • Cut ribbon into lengths long enough to go around wreath form with a bit of overlap.
  • Wrap alternating pieces of ribbon around wreath and secure in place with straight pins until entire wreath is covered.
  • Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the back where the ends of the ribbon are to prevent fraying.
  • Make felt flowers: Cut a strip of felt approximately 2"x12". Fold in half lengthwise and sew ends together. Once sewn, cut slits down entire length about 3/4 of the way to the bottom. Next, starting with one end, roll up into flower and sew through bottom to secure

  • Paint wooden letter to match ribbon and let dry.
  • Glue on felt flowers and wooden letter with hot glue.
