Pinwheel Wreath By Jessica Hill
FloraCraft® Foam Flat Wreath
FloraCraft® 5” Burlap Garland
Assorted colors of Kunin™ Group Classicfelt™
Needle and Thread
Wrap the wreath form in burlap ribbon and pin in place. Set aside.
Cut two squares out of different colors of felt. Squares must be perfectly square and the same size. Stack the felt squares. Cut the felt from each corner toward the middle, but not all the way to the middle.
With a needle and thread, sew through the middle of both squares and through one corner of the felt square. Sew, from top to bottom, through each of the remaining corners. Sew through the button from bottom to top of one hole, and from top to bottom on the other. Sew back down through the center of the felt. Repeat the sewing process; tighten and tie off the thread. Glue can also be used. Make as many pinwheels as you would like to decorate the wreath.
Using floral pins, pin the pinwheels to the wreath form.
Use grosgrain ribbon to make a loop from which to hang the wreath. Sew one more pinwheel to the ribbon.
