Christmas, Tutorials

This pretty wreath will make a stylish table centrepiece for the festive season, place it around a candle, or make up a few to create a unique display of wreaths. I really can’t wait to decorate the house this Christmas with a few of these! Below is a step by step tutorial on how to create this project and a materials list. You can buy the dies on the Crafter’s Companion website!


Top Tip: Use natural wool felt for best results. I’ve hand-stitched this one but you could machine sew if you wish.


Debbie Shore Poinsettia Die

Two 23cm [9”] squares of natural coloured felt 20cm and 8cm [8”and 3”]
Circle templates
One 23cm [9”] square of bright red, one green and one dark red felt
Four buttons
Toy filler
Felt glue
8” ribbon to hang

Steps to create
1. Using your circle templates, draw then cut out two donuts shapes with the large circle for the outside and small circle to make a hole in the centre.




2. Sew the two pieces together with a blanket stitch, starting all the way around the middle, then around the outside. Leave a gap in each side of the outer edge for stuffing. Carefully stuff with toy filler, a small amount at a time, try not to stretch the felt as you go. Hand sew over the openings.

3. Cut four flourish shapes using dark red felt. Arrange around the circle then secure with felt glue.


4. To make the poinsettias, glue six large petals cut from red felt, and glue to a small scrap of felt in a circle.




5. Glue 5 or 6 small petals to the centre, then add a button to cover the join.


6. Make up four flowers, and glue them around the wreath.


7. Hand sew the ribbon to the back of the wreath to hang.



I hope you have fun creating this wreath! Please remember to be careful if using this as a candle holder! Let me see your creations!

Happy sewing,

Debbie xoxo
