Easy to make and so very sweet! This branchy felt tangerine wreath is made up of multicolored felt leaves, flowers, and large wool balls for the citrus.
Due to all of the pieces needing to be cut, we recommend using a cutting machine to speed things up a bit. But you can always use our template to cut your pieces by hand instead.
Only the Zest
We love making citrus crafts during the winter season! You could really make this felt tangerine wreath any time of the year. But since it’s pretty cold and gray here in Portland during the winter, adding some vibrant citrus colors to our home decor is a great way to brighten up any room.
Our tutorial below will show you how to make your own wreath and then add the felt leaves, felt flowers, and wool balls to create a beautiful and realistic wreath. Once assembled, our felt tangerine wreath measures about 14″ across. You can always play around with the size of your wreath if you’d like and also how you arrange all of the pieces.
