DIY Fabric Flower Wreath

This DIY fabric flower wreath is so easy to make and could be interpreted in so many different ways to fit in with your holiday decor. Make a silver one for Hanukkah! I think this red fabric looks like poinsettias but these won’t make my cat sick because they’re made out of fabric!

DIY Fabric Flower Wreath

Prep It:

  • Plain wreath shape from craft store – I used a faux evergreen wreath but you could use a dried vine wreath, a foam one or even a piece of cardboard 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.
  • Scissors.

Do It:

The fabric flowers I made for this wreath are similar to the ones I made for the Fabric Flower Headpiece, which is in video tutorial form here!

  1. Cut fabric into different sized squares ranging from 2″x 2″ to 4″ x 4″.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Repeat step 3 with another square so you have 3 squeezed wonton flowers layered as one – this will make them look full.
  5. 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.
  6. Once full and lovely, hang it on a door or wall or use as a centerpiece! Happy holidays!
