Materials
Foam Wreath (preferably a festive heart one)
Felt (about 1 yard, not hot pink if you are planning on photographing it)
Straight Pins
Scissors
Ruffle Wreath1


Directions
Step 1: Cut circles out of your felt. Lots and lots of circles. I used a spool of ribbon (about 3 inches wide) as my circular template but you can use anything round to trace circles onto your felt, then just cut away. The larger the circle, the bigger the ruffles. I didn’t want to over cut and waste felt or time so I cut a few circles, pinned a few to my wreath, cut a few more, pinned a few more until it was complete.

Step 2: Take a felt circle and fold it in half. Fold it in half once again to form a ruffle.

Step 3: Stick a straight pin in at the tip of the ruffle and pin it to the foam wreath.

Step 4: Repeat steps 2 & 3 until your wreath is full of ruffles. Pin ruffles close together so the foam wreath doesn’t show. Only pin ruffles to the front half of the wreath so it will sit flat against the door (plus, no one will see the back). Be warned, this is a bit time consuming (especially if you have OCD tendencies like I do).

Step 5: Attach a small piece of ribbon to the back with a couple pins to form a hanger.
