Mother’s Day is right around the corner and I absolutely love it when my daughters make me something for Mother’s Day. I have always loved hand made gifts because they come from the heart. Well, this year, my daughters wanted to create something a little bit different than the traditional card. So, we came up with the idea together to create these Mini Felt Mother’s Day Wreaths and they turned out adorable.
16″ Gauge Aluminum Wire
- Wire Cutters
- 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon
- Various Colors of Felt
- Tacky Glue
Step 1: Cut the aluminum wire so it measures roughly 13″ to 14″. Bend and wrap it together so it forms a mini circular wreath. You can customize this to any size you would like.
Step 2: Hot glue the green grosgrain ribbon in place at the top of the wreath and wrap it tightly around the wire. Once you’ve finished wrapping the ribbon around the entire wreath, hot glue it again in place.
Step 3: Cut out mini felt leaves and wrap them onto the wire as shown above.
Step 4: If your child has a hard time cutting flower shapes out of felt, have them draw the shapes onto the felt or use pattern. Cut out all various shapes and sizes of flowers out of felt. When getting ready to glue, look at the pieces and if you have any marker or pencil marks from drawing out the felt flowers, just flip them over before gluing in place. Use tacky glue to glue the pieces together.
Here’s and example of one of the flowers that was tacky glued along the bottom and then rolled up. The others were just layered.
Step 5: Cut out the the letters for Mom and the two hearts for the O.
These are so cute and springy. I think your kids will enjoy getting creative & making these for Mother’s Day or for any occasion for that matter. Enjoy!
