WHAT YOU NEED TO GET STARTED
- Green felt
- Pipe cleaners (red, green, silver)
- Pom poms
- Fabric glue
Creating the wreath
Your first step in creating your wreath is to cut three, one inch strips of green felt. Then, take each strip and fold it back-and-forth (accordion style) in one inch squares.
Once it’s all folded, carefully snip the middle of the very top of each fold. Make sure you cut the folds on both sides of your accordion.
Now grab your pipe cleaner and weave your felt using the small holes you just cut. Repeat this process with the remaining two strips of felt.
Next, you’ll slide both ends of the pipe cleaner criss-cross through the top of the jingle bell. Then simply twist the ends a couple of times make sure it’s secure.
The finishing touch
With your felt and bell in place, all that’s left is arranging your wreath! Slide the felt folds around the pipe cleaner until you get the look you desire.
Add a few colorful pom poms with some fabric glue or hot glue for some extra flair. You can never go wrong with more sparkle!
