Holiday Decorating and An Old DIY: Felt Wreath

Our little family has started the tradition of decorating our house for Christmas every year on Black Friday.
So even though I've never been out shopping on Black Friday, we do get up, turn on the Christmas music and unload the Christmas boxes.
I love it and am dying to get my decorations out every year.
I thought I would re post some of previous year's crafts for you all.
I also try and make something new each year for our home's decor.  

Here is a little tutorial on how to make this felt wreath.  Any color combo will do, but I do love the white, cream, and grey.

Last week a couple of friends and I got together for a craft night.
Obviously I am obsessed with crafting and felt this holiday season - I can't get enough.
These wreaths were super easy and props to Ashly for figuring out how to make them!

What you'll need:
Styrofoam wreath (or any wreath base)
Felt, one color or multiple
Hot glue gun
Any embellishments

Cut your felt into a square
These do not need to be perfect, I liked that mine were all different sizes.

Fold in half and cut a half circle

Cut slits into half circle getting pretty close to the center.
Once again, I made 4-5 slits, it can differ

I used white, creme, and grey

After cutting all of my circles, I used a pencil to glue the felt to the wreath.
First, wrap the felt around the eraser end, and generously dot with glue gun.

Then push the felt into the styrofoam and hold to let dry.

I wanted to put glittered birds and what nots in mine, but didn't find what I was looking for,
so I made a Happy Holidays sign and placed that in the middle.

Hope that tutorial helps!

That's really cute! Did it take a while to put together? I would love to do my own wreath, but don't have a ton of time before Christmas
