Felt Magnolia Wreath

Get holiday ready. Deck your wall and warm your heart with our DIY Merry Magnolia Wreath (as seen in Better Homes & Garden's Make it Yourself magazine!). At Benzie, we love it in Moss colored felt trimmed with our white handmade poms but Benzie's Meadow felt with accents of Zucchini would give it the true Magnolia wreath feel. A no-glue and no-sew project too! Grab your supplies below.

Supplies for felt wreath

Supplies needed:
12-14" foam wreath base 
Stick pins
1 1/2 yards of wool blend felt or 12 bags of leaf felt-fetti 
1.5cm or 2cm felt balls, 25 in white

how to make a felt wreath
First, grab your stack of felt leaves (skip the scissors and use our precut shapes) or cut your own almond shaped leaves out of yardage. Our large leaves are about 3 1/2 x 2 inches wide and our small leaves are about 2 1/2 x 1 1/4" inches wide. To give the wreath a full appearance we folded the tip of each leaf over each other and use the stick pin to attach to the styrofoam wreath. 

Felt Greenery How ToContinue to place the leaves row by row -pinning each leaf about 1/2" to 1" apart from each other. You will only pin leaves to the front and sides of the wreath. The back side will remain unfinished. 

Craft a wreath from felt.

Continue until the wreath is completed. Use leftover leaves to fill in empty spaces. 

Mistletoe Wreath from FeltLastly, grab the felt poms and stick the pin through the edge of the pom and carefully pin to the wreath hiding the pin in the back side of the pom. A beautiful full wreath to decorate! Go all out and add some magnolia flowers to it -get the diy!

    I just finished mine and I am so happy with it! I made one small change…I wrapped the wreath form in ribbon first since it will be hanging on a glass door and that made a few of the pins a bit hard to get in, but it worked and the results are so beautiful. Thanks for sharing this project!!

    Ronni -I’m so sorry to hear your frustration! Are you using the styrofoam wreath and pins we recommend? We have had lots of luck here using the pin method -but if hot glue is more comfortable to you -go ahead and use that! Let us know if you have any other questions!

    This is so cute, I couldn’t wait to make it. But…..I’m finding it excessively frustrating for some reason! The leaves don’t seem to want to stay pinned down and I can’t seem to get them folded properly to hold that shape. What a bummer. :/
