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”]
One 23cm [9”] square of bright red, one green and one dark red felt
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.
5. Glue 5 or 6 small petals to the centre, then add a button to cover the join.
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!
