Fall Rosette Wreath

Hello all! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Ours was spent relaxing. I didn’t even break out any crafts! How strange. And a happy October to you as well! I can’t believe it is already October. My how the year has flown by.

Randomness: Happy 5th Anniversary to my lovely hubby! 5 years ago today we became a couple! I knew from that day on that I had met my soulmate. I love you!

In continuation of my fall decorating, I created a fall wreath! I’ve mentioned once or twice or 10 million times that I love wreaths. They just scream “WELCOME” to me. Actually, mine says it directly on there… but same thing, right?

I was inspired by this absolutely gorgeous wreath created by Little Things Bring Smiles. Isn’t it just lovely popping against her blue door!? Love.

Want to create one of your own? First this is what you will need:

  • 15 sheets of felt {I did 8 sheets of mustard yellow and 7 sheets of gray}
  • Grapevine wreath {mine is 18″}
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Circle template {I used a CD for my big flowers and a can for the small ones}
  • Some patience

Start with your felt and large circle template. Trace the circle onto your felt. You can fit 3 of this size. In the felt left, you can cut out 3 small circles.

Cut around your circle in a spiral shape. No need to be prefect. Just eyeball it. {Note: This is one of the smaller circles and only has one full spiral cut. The bigger ones will have 2-3 spirals}.

Starting with the outside tail of the spiral, begin to roll the felt. Keep the inside line of the spiral aligned as you roll. {By this I mean the inside/left of the rolled felt in picture above.}

Once the felt is rolled, use your hot glue gun and glue the end of the spiral to secure it.

Do this to all your felt circles. This is where the patience comes in. It takes quite a while. The picture above only shows about 1/3 of the flowers I created for my wreath! Just pass the time by turning on a TV show or some Harry Potter {sorry, I’m addicted. You will get LOTS of HP references on this blog}.

Hot glue the flowers all over your grapevine wreath.

And I whipped up a little burlap and twine bunting and glued that on there too! But that definitely isn’t necessary. I’m just obsessed with bunting {as you saw on my natural fall mantel}.

I hung that baby on my door and I can’t help but smile every time I see it! It screams both “Welcome to our home!” as well as “Welcome Fall!” I just love it.

Are you a wreath-aholic like me?
