Initial Flower Wreath

The flowers are blooming, and the sun is shining! I love it. It inspired me to make an outdoor project. At least, a project that hangs outside. A homemade initial flower wreath! This project was fairly simple, it did take some time to make the flowers, but that depends how full you want your wreath, and what types of flowers you want to make. The ones I made are probably the simplest. Okay here we go!
 My inspiration for this project was a $1.00 wooden welcome sign from Michael's. I was going to hang it by itself, but then later decided to make this wreath and add just the decal and "W" for the initial of our last name!

 Okay, lets start off with what you need:
-About a yard of felt fabric
-A stick wreath (I got mine at walmart for about $2.00)
-Hot glue gun/e6000 glue
-A small circular object to trace (on felt)
-Wooden letter of initial
-Acrylic paint (if the letter is not already painted)
-String or ribbon (To hang your wreath)

1. The first thing you're going to need to do is start making your flowers. I followed this tutorial on Pattern Stitch Blog, flower number 3 (Rosette).
2. After you've completed your flowers, use your hot glue gun to place and stick them to your wreath!

3. Set aside your wreath to dry, and while that's happening, you can work on your letter. I just used acrylic paint I had lying around on my letter.

4. After your wreath and letter are done drying you can use either the hot glue gun or something like e6000 glue to attach your letter to your wreath.
5. The last step is to tie on your string or ribbon. Tie a knot on the top of the wreath, then make a pretty bow!
Here is my completed wreath!
