Our door was looking a little blah and needed a happy wreath to perk it up. I have had this Scalloped Edge wreath pinned for some time now, it looks so simple and festive. Instead of scalloped felt, I put my own spin on this wreath and made a fringed piñata wreath!
5 sheets of felt, different colors.
wreath form (mine is from the dollar store – $1!)
hot glue and hot glue gun
Cut your felt pieces into one inch strips, then cut in half. Get your sharp scissors ready and fringe em!
Lay out your stripes and find a color pattern you like, and hot glue them to the wreath. You’ll want to go counter-clockwise when adding the strips of felt so that you can cover the previous strip with some fringe (see picture if that rambling doesn’t make sense).
You can leave the wreath as is, or move your hand around the wreath and fluff the fringe out.
Make sure the kids don’t take a bat to your door and wreath, as there is NO candy (I REPEAT – NO CANDY!!!) inside the wreath. It only looks like a piñata!
Here's a long tutorial for you to pin, enjoy!
Where did you happen to happen to find the white wreath at.??

Dollar Tree a few years ago. It was a natural wood color, I spray painted it white
Ahhhhh okay looked at several of my dollar tree stores and they don’t carry it. Don’t like the grape vine wreaths so I guess I’ll buy online. Thank You.

Oh Heidi, absolutely! Thanks so much for the sweet words and for letting me know. 🙂 It was a joy to meet you!!
Do I cut the felt lengthwise?
I used the sheets of felt and cut them into strips, then fringed them. You'll have to check the wreath you're covering to see how long each strip needs to be, but they were about an inch tall.
Hope that helps! 🙂

This is such a lovely wreath! I'm not very good at crafts, but with this tutorial, I can definitely make this fun decoration. It's a great craft to do with kids as well.
awww, thanks April! It is a happy looking wreath in person too, let me know if you make one 🙂
This is cute!!! It almost looks like you could make it out of mini muffin cup liners, too!
The formula for finding the circumference of a circle is 'pi times the diameter'. Since we know the circumference, the formula would become 'circumference divided by pi = diameter'. In this case, it would be 1 divided by 3.14 = 0.3184
Love it!! Great work!
Would be awesome in a kids room!! I wonder if school glue would hold the fabric on...could make it into a kid craft!
LOVE THIS! So super duper cute and festive! You could totally use it to for party decor for a kid's bday or something too. Love a multi-tasking craft project! Will be checking out Project Pinterest for sure! FYI you post ends with "I'm
