NOTE: If young children are making these felt wreath ornaments, beforehand prep steps 1 and 2 of the project - cut out the 1" square and cut a slit in the center of the squares. 

INSTRUCTIONS for making felt wreath :

STEP 1: cut felt squares

To make the mini felt wreath ornament, if you are using wool felt fabric or wool felt blend fabric, you need 100 1" squares.   Wool felt and wool blend felt is a little thicker than standard felt.  If you use standard felt sheets, more 1" square will be needed.

For this wreath project, I am using a wool blend felt in two colors, red and green.  Wool felt blends are blends of wool and another material most ofter rayon.  Wool blend felt has a much nicer look and feel than synthetic felt.  And the colors are amazing.

From each of the two wool felt blend colors, I cut 50 1" squares.

Mini Christmas Wreath Ornament Cut Strips

The easiest way to cut the squares is with a rotary cutter, ruler and mat.   Cut 1” strips from the felt fabric.  Stack a few strips on top of each other and then sub-cut into 1” x 1” pieces.  

If you don’t have a rotary cutter, ruler and mat, you can use a scissor.  Grab a grid ruler and measure 1” across the edge of the piece of felt.  Use a marking tool to draw a straight line on the felt.  Continue to make 1” increment marks across the piece of felt.  

Cut on the mark lines, then sub-cut into 1" squares. Mini Wreath Ornament Felt Squares

STEP 2: make slits in felt squares

STEP 3: time to assemble the felt wreath

Start threading the felt pieces onto the pipe cleaner.  Since I am using only two colors, I alternated the colors when threading the felt pieces onto the pipe cleaner, first one color than the other color. Mini Wreath Ornament Thread Onto Pipe CleanerI continued adding red and green felt, alternating colors until all squares were used.

Depending on the number of colors you use, the 1" felt squares can be threaded onto the pipe cleaner in any way desired.

STEP 4: form wreath

Now it's time to form the wreath. Once every square is in place, bend the pipe cleaner into a circle and cross the two ends and twist them together like a twisty tie. Mini Wreath Ornament Bend Into Circle

With the ends of the pipe cleaners, twist the two ends together to form a loop for hanging. Mini Wreath Ornament Make Hanging Loop
