Felt Wreath Project

I took some projects to work on while we were in Jax last week.  It's easier to get fun things done when you don't have laundry and dishes staring you down!  A friend of mine made one of these felt wreaths and I thought it was so cute that I had to try it.  It takes some time, but it's not hard to do.

Here's what you need:
12" Styrofoam Ring
15 Felt squares cut into 1.5" x 3" pieces
Tacky Glue
Something pointy - knitting needle or bamboo skewer

Put your pointy object in the center of a felt piece
Gather up the sides and dip into Tacky Glue

Stick into styrofoam.  It was easier for me to make a little hole in the styrofoam before putting the felt piece in.
Ta-Da!
With some left over felt I made some ornaments too.  Just get some styrofoam balls and do the same thing!
