Doll-sized Fall Wreath Craft

Bonjour! 🙂

Today I will be showing you how to make a fun fall wreath for your dolls!

You will need…

  • Cardboard
  • Felt
  • Glue
  • Optional: Paper and coloring supplies.

First off, cut two circles out of the cardboard that are the size you want your wreath to be. Then cut slits in them so you can cut a smaller circle out of the middle.

Glue the circles together, lining up the slits they both have. Don’t glue the slit closed. It has a purpose later. 🙂

Now cut long, thin strips of felt. I used brown and tan. These are the colors for the base of your wreath.

You can basically do this however you like, but here’s how I did it.

Glue the strips together at one end and twist them around each other, keeping the strips pretty straight as you go (kind of like how you would make a rope braid). Glue the other ends together, once it’s been twisted all the way.

Then glue one end of your twisted felt to the cardboard wreath form, and wrap the felt around the form, gluing as you go. You can make more felt twists until you wrapped it all the way. Be sure not to glue/wrap the slit.

Now cut out various leaf shapes using felt or colored papers.

Arrange them on the front of your wreath and glue them in place.

Now to take advantage of that slit you had to keep open all this time! 😉 . Take a tiny strip of felt, and glue the two ends together to make a loop, like pictured above.

Stick the glued end of the loop into the slit, and glue it in place. Yes, you may glue the slit closed if you want to now  😉 . You can use this loop to hang up the wreath.

And you’re finished!

I think this wreath is really cute for fall! Caroline seems to think so 🙂 .
