I love a good challenge.
So when one of my repeat customers sent me an image of this ombre ruffled shower curtain that she just bought and asked me to create a wreath inspired by it, I was definitely up for the challenge!
Picking materialsThe first step was to choose the yarn color and felt colors. Luckily I've been amassing dozens of colors of wool-blend felt (Thank you Etsy!) so I already had the perfect colors in my felt stash. I sent the photo to my customer and she loved what I had hand-picked.
Making the felt flowers and leavesMy favorite part of the entire process is creating the felt flowers and leaves. I don't use a pattern or make any measurements, so every flower is unique. I make at least a few of each flower variety in a couple different sizes. And several double-layered leaves.
Assembling the wreath
The next step is to arrange the felt pieces on the wreath. In keeping with the ombre style, I decided to start with the fern green leaves then move to the lightest aqua, moving into the peacock and teal. If there are any "bald" spots I will make more flowers or leaves to fill it out.
I am really happy the way this wreath turned out! Thanks Anthea for working with me to create this custom wreath for you.
If you would like to order a custom wreath, I'd love to work with you! And if you love the wreath shown in this blog post, I can re-create it for you as well. Please send me a message through Etsy (or leave a comment here) and we can discuss details.
Thanks for stopping by!
