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
- 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.
- 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!
