YELLOW ROSE WREATH

This beautiful Yellow Rose Spring Wreath can be made smaller or larger depending on how much time you have. 


You will need 

10 x sheets of yellow gold felt
2 x sheets of lime green felt
1 x  A2 sheet of black foam board
1 large round plate (33cm approx)  & 1 small round plate (20 cm approx)
glue gin

Method 

To create the wreath base, lay the large plate on top of the foam board, with a craft knife cut around the outside edge to form a circle. Place the smaller plate in the middle, so there is equal space between all sides and cut out the inner circle.

To make the roses, cut widthways 3-4cm strips from the yellow felt sheets. Run a line of glue along one of the lengths and roll inwards, bunching as you go to form a rose shape. Trim ends, and shape.

To make the leaves, cut out around 25, 5cm leaf shapes from the green  felt. Run a line of glue about 1 cm from the middle of the leaf to the end, then pinch to form a fold.

Work your way around the base adding the roses so you cannot see any of the foam board behind. Add the leaves at random intervals, they can be used to fill gaps between roses.
