How to Make

1. Start by winding the wool / yarn around the polystyrene wreath base.

2. Glue and pin to secure in place on the back of the wreath. Wind the wool/yarn around the wreath evenly, making sure there are no gaps. If you do get a gap gently push the strands closer together.

3. Next create your flowers…

The Swirly Flower

1. With a fabric pen draw around a CD on the sheet of felt and then cut out the circle.

2. Cut a spiral into the circle, making sure that the strip is one centimetre wide.

3. Continue cutting until you get close to the centre of the circle. Don’t cut right to the centre; leave a small circle of felt to give your flower a neat finish.

5. Starting at the beginning of the spiral roll the end and stick with a small dab of glue using a glue gun. Continue to roll the felt making sure to keep the cut edge flat.

The Rose

1. From a sheet of felt cut 16 2.5 centimetre diameter circles. Cut a slit to the centre on 15 of the circles.

2. On each of the 15 cut circles add a small dab of glue along the edge of the slit and then overlap the felt. The circle should then look like a small cone shape. These form the petals of the rose.

3. Cut a strip of felt 12 centimetre long and one centimetre wide. Tie a knot in the centre of the strip and secure with a small dab of glue.

4. Add the petals one at a time, working from the inside of the flower out. Take the first petal and add a small dab of glue on the overlap of the petal and then wrap around the knot you created. Turn slightly and then add another petal in the same way, slightly overlapping the first petal.

To Decorate the Wreath

4. When you have created all of your flowers glue them into place on the wreath.

5. To make the silhouette for the centre of your wreath, draw a rabbit silhouette onto card. Carefully cut out and then glue onto the wreath.

6. To finish tie some vintage lace to the wreath to create a hanging loop.
