We love crafting new wreaths for every season. While our felt ginkgo wreath isn’t a traditional design for this time of year, Krista wanted to create something a little different for our fall collection. Plus, ginkgo biloba leaves are known to turn a brilliant golden hue for autumn!
Since there are so many leaves to cut, we recommend using a cutting machine with our SVG file for this project. But you can always cut by hand instead by using our printable template.
Krista cut numerous leaves for this felt ginkgo wreath using a cutting machine and four colors of felt. You will also see in her tutorial how she colored ridges on the leaves with art markers and added a bit of green pastel to the edges. After coloring, the last step is to glue your leaves onto a wooden embroidery hoop, though a vine wreath would look just as amazing for a more rustic, natural look.

How to Make a Felt Ginkgo Wreath
- Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the pattern below.
- Cut out felt according to template using a cutting machine with a rotary blade (recommended) or scissors. The listed amounts are what we used to fill out a 10″ wreath, so you may need more or less depending on the size of the wreath form that you are working with.
- Spray what will be the backsides of the leaves with a fabric stiffening spray. Let dry completely.
- Draw lines in a fan shape on the front of the leaves. We used art markers that were a darker shade than the color of the felt. Pat the excess ink off gently on a scrap piece of paper.
