Spring green wreath



 This project is really simple all you need is
Glue gun
Sewing machine (or you can hand stitch)
Green thread
Green fabric 1/2 yard
Green felt 1/2 yard
Wreath 


I got my spring green fabric from the sale fabric section at Walmart (1.50 a yard)
You can also find felt almost anywhere for a good price as well.
My thread was 2.00 and I got the wreath from Dollar Tree (I was surprised how big it was).


Total cost:
5 dollars




1) The most time consuming part of this project is the cutting.
I cut 36 leaves out of felt and 36 leaves out of regular fabric. The leaves are 4 inches by 2 and a half inches. 


2) Sew a straight line down each of your leaves attaching the a felt leaf with a fabric leaf.


3) Using your hot glue gun attach the leaves felt side down to your wreath. I glued in clusters of three. First I glued two leaves on the sides then one in the middle and continued in that pattern all the way around.







Easy... CHECK 
Thrifty... CHECK

Sophie's Tip: If you can't find a wreath at the dollar store then check for an old wreath at a thrift store that could use a make over OR just head over to JoAnns or Hobby Lobby with one of their ever present 50% off coupons!
