Team Color Wreath Tutorial

Are you ready for some football?

Today is the Eve of a very important day!  That's right. It's that time of year.  College football is in full swing again, and at the Henderson home, many a "Roll Tide!" will be heard!  (My husband actually told me a couple days ago to get out the Alabama decorations. Not that I have a lot, but I will kindly oblige my pigskin-loving hubby.)

In honor of the arrival of the college football season, I thought I would give a quick tutorial on how to make a team color wreath. Mine, of course, is decked out in houndstooth, crimson, and white, but make yours any color you want!  Don't worry. I won't judge.  To each his own.

Team Color Wreath

What you will need:
-Wreath form
-Burlap, fabric, and felt in your team colors
-Buttons (optional)
-Hot glue gun

Making the Wreath:
1.  Wrap wreath form with burlap or fabric. (I used a straw wreath form)

2. Make burlap, felt, and fabric flowers. I used a couple of tutorials that were really helpful so I will just share those.   For variations of felt flowers, take a look at these tutorials here and here. You could also check out this site with some great patterns for felt flowers. For burlap flowers, check out this wonderful little tutorial.

3.After you have made your flowers, hot glue them on your wreath.

4. Add embellishments.  I added buttons and some fabric leaves.  To make the fabric leaves, cut fabric and felt into the shape of a leaf and glue the fabric to the felt. This gives it a little stability.  Then place them on your wreath wherever you want!

For all of you Auburn fans!

Easy, huh?  Making the flowers can take a little time, but once you get the hang of it, it's a breeze!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!  Happy football viewing!
