Felt Flower Grapevine Wreath

I am back with the Craft and Create with Cricut Challenge this month and our theme is Fall. Last year I made several wreaths, but not one for Fall, so I decided to use my new Cricut Maker to make some felt flowers and succulents in Fall colors to use on a grapevine wreath.

Supplies needed for Felt Flower Grapevine Wreath

I started by searching on "flower" projects in Design Space and found two different ones that I ended up using: Felt Flower Baby Headband Project and Hanging Felt Succulent Garden Project. I duplicated the flower pattern on the headband project so I could get 3 flowers from the cut. From the felt sampler pack, I chose rich fall colors for the flowers: plum, moss green, gray, and olive green.

Since I am using the new Cricut Maker, I set the material to Felt and loaded the first mat, letting the machine do its thing. Repeat the process for the other mats.

Once the cuts have completed slowly peel back the felt leaving the flower pieces on the mat, then remove the pieces and group together.

The succulents are assembled by stacking the pieces with the largest on the bottom to the smallest on the top, securing each layer with a dollop of hot glue.

For the plum flowers, I put a dab of hot glue on each of the edges of the petal, slightly overlapping them, giving the flower a 3-dimensional quality. I glued two of the flowers together, offsetting the petals. The middle was made by rolling up the straight piece of felt and securing with hot glue. I layered a few of the leaves together and attached to the back of the flower.

I decided where I wanted the flowers on the grapevine wreath and secured them with hot glue. Once the glue had dried, I hung it on my door.
