Eighth Day of Christmas

my true love gave to me.. a felt wreath for decorating..

I filed away this idea from Bella Dia who is also the creator of one of my favourite crafty blogs The Crafty Crow She used felted wool sweaters, but I have used just plain cheap felt from the shops.

All you need is some wire and some felt scraps cut into squares (about 1.5cm square)

Thread the squares onto the wire. Bend one end of the wire to stop them falling off. Some felts are easy to thread on, others are quite tough. I used a big needle to poke a hole through the thicker felts to make it easier to thread.

Keep going until you have filled your wire, then bend the wires over, and press them closed.

And make many more as they are easy and quick to make and there are so many colour combinations to try out

Mine are about 10cm high. You can make them as big or small as you like.. but the smaller the cuter they are.

Excellent. My older boy is obsessed with threading and am always on the lookout for new ideas. Will check out your link. Sarah W
