Tutorial - Tulle Christmas wreath

I've been keeping busy the past couple of days. Only one item on my list needs to be finished by noon Saturday to be shipped to my family in Europe: a play tent for my sweet nieces (ages two and three 1/2). In all that madness I managed to squeeze a few more projects:

an advent calendar 

and another (bigger) tulle wreath. 

This time I took pictures of all the steps so time for a tutorial :)

- 1 wire coat hanger
- Strip of batting or felt
- about 1 yard of tulle scraps - assorted colors
- 1/8 yard of satin scraps - assorted colors
- thread and needle
- buttons
- elastic band
- Small pieces of felt
- Hot glue

Unfold the coat hanger and shape it into a circle

Cut a long strip of batting about 2 inches wide and wrap it around the wire . Hot glue the end of the strip to the wire

I picked remnants of shinny tulle in peach white and gold

Cut the tulle in strips about 6 inches long by 2 wide

Knot the tulle on the covered wire

Mix and alternate colors until the whole circle is covered

Time for the flowers

Cut strips of satin strip about 11-12 inches long by 2 wide. Fold in half and zigzag/serge the edge. Gather the fabric with stitches about 1/4 inch long.

Pull the thread and form the flower, cut the satin leaves in coordinating fabric. I used the "singed flower" method to finish the edges.
For the finish you will need 1 button for the center a small circle of felt, 5 inches of elastic tied in a loop, some glue and another (ugly) button for each.

Stitch the button for the center and use the rest of the thread to secure the leaves. Place the elastic loop and hot glue the circle of felt on top of it and stitch the ugly button at the bottom.

This is how they turned out

Use the elastic loop and the button to tie the flowers to the wreath- This method makes it easy to reposition the flowers as much as you want. Add a big bow (or not)
Hang it and feel  the mood change instantly
