You know how sometimes you get really really excited about a project and just can’t wait to share it? Well, that’s how I feel about today’s Green Beaded Wreath!
This fall I am going for a non-traditional color palette (what’s new, I always go non traditional!) and that is coming across loud and clear in many of my fall related posts. You’ll be seeing more peach, coral, gold, cream, white and bright pops of emerald green!
What supplies do I need to make a Green Beaded Wall Wreath?
How do I make a Green Beaded Wall Wreath?
I started first by creating all my felt flowers. I always do this simple technique for felt flowers, cut your felt into a sloppy circle shape and then cut a spiral from the outside edge all the way to the center.
The more variegated the spiral and original circle, the more interest in your final flower look.
Meanwhile, you can start wrapping your form with the green beads. This actually doesn’t take too long unless you get about a 3/4 of the way done and run out of beads and then go to the store to get more and they are out.
Then, you have to buy all new beads, come home and take apart the wreath and do it again. I know, so frustrating. But also, so worth it for that lovely emerald green… makes me heart stop beating a moment, I love it so.
And then maybe you get this far (see below image) and AGAIN run out of beads and have to go back to the store. I was about to throw this guy out the window… but I just knew… keep going.
Finally all those dang beads were done and I glued the felt flowers and a few paper flowers on.
Are you ready for a sad story now?
I had JUST set this wreath on display on our fireplace mantel and in a freak gust of wind coming through an open window, everything on my mantel came crashing down. My lovely green beaded wreath broke the fall of a few items, but oddly enough shattered into seven plus pieces. RIP sweet wreath, you were so well loved for a few days.
