Handmade wreaths are something we love to create for every season and holiday. Designed by Krista, our felt holiday floral wreath features felt poinsettias, cosmos, and hellebore flowers — as well as a few clusters of felt ball berries.
Although this wreath includes a lot of flowers, they are simple to assemble, making this a great DIY wreath for beginners! Since there are so many pieces to cut, we recommend using a Cricut Maker or Silhouette Cameo 4. However, you can always cut your flowers by hand if you don’t have a cutting machine.
Floral Fun for the Holidays
This felt holiday floral wreath would be a fun one to craft with your family. Since there are multiple pieces, everyone can work on one type of flower or help out with different assembly steps. Just gather everyone around the table, put on your favorite Christmas music, and enjoy your favorite seasonal drink as you craft!
Ready to get started? We decided to give our felt holiday floral wreath a monochromatic look. But you could work in any color of felt, such as a dark green, cream and white, or even a blush pink.
As always, we’d love to see your version of this wreath, so make sure to share photos with us. You can email email@example.com, post on our crafters community page, or use the hashtag #MadeWithLia on Instagram.

Yes, it does! Thank you.
I am really loving this wreath! But I have a few questions/comments.
1) You suggest 6 sheets of felt n the material list, but when I tried to cut using my Cricut it needed 7. I was able to move things around to get to 6 sheets, but that did take some work.
2) It wasn’t exactly clear where to put the glue in picture 5. (Although it was clear after looking at the next picture.)
2) Speaking of glue. Was any other glue used? My hot-glue skills aren’t the best, you are obviously masters!
3) There are 4 different leaves in the cut file and PDF. You only work with 1 in the tutorial and I can’t see any of the other in the pictures. Were they used? Where are they used. Do they need the middle creasing too?
Hi Alicia! We love to hear our member’s feedback and are editing the tutorial to make it more clear based off of your comments.
Usually with our projects, the recommended number of felt sheets is based off of what we actually used, which does sometimes involve some amount of planning and maximizing all of the material. For the poinsettia petals, it seems the indicator for where the glue is applied got deleted accidentally, but it is there now and is also shown in the PDF template. We use almost exclusively hot glue for any felt flower related project because it dries fast, but you could use a quick dry tacky glue instead if you prefer, like Aleene’s. Just keep in mind it will take a while to dry and you may need to make use of sewing pins to hold in place. Lastly, the only leaves that were glued and folded are the smaller teardrop-shaped ones. The poinsettia, oak, and maple shaped leaves were all kept flat to help fill in space and add some textural depth to the wreath. We clarified this as well in the tutorial.
We hope that answers all of your questions, and happy crafting!
