How to make

Step-1

Firstly create a paper template for your flowers, draw and cut out the simple shapes to make the Pom style flowers. I created a long rectangle arrow template for Flower 1 and two simple flower shapes and circle for the Flower 2.

Step-2

Flower 1: Draw around the template you created onto felt and cut out the shape.

Step-3

Fold the long rectangular arrow in half and sew along the longest edge.

Step-4

Snip along the folded edge, be careful not to cut through the stitching.

Step-5

Roll the shape into a tight spiral and secure my stitching through the middle.

Step-6

Repeat these steps until you have created many different colours and sizes.

Step-7

Flower 2: Draw around the template you created onto felt and cut out the shape.

Step-8

Arrange your flower shapes into groups of six petals and one circle. Fold a petal in half and half again and securely stitch to the circle. Repeat with three more petals.

Step-9

Finally fold and stitch the last two petals into the middle of the flower.

Step-10

Flower 3: Using a fabric marker or pencil, draw a spiral flower shape directly onto your felt and cut out carefully.

Step-11

Starting from the centre roll up the flower and stick the end down using a small dab of fabric glue.

Step-12

Creating the Sugar Skull: Using white acrylic paint, paint the skull to give it a matt finish. Once dry, carefully cut the back of the head off the skull (This is so it will sit flat against your wreath)

Step-13

Using either acrylic paint or nail varnish, paint on your sugar skull design. Once dry, you can use a glue gun to stick the skull to your polystyrene wreath.

Step-14

You can now add your felt flowers! Use a glue gun to stick the flowers to the wreath and you’re finished!
