Sunflower Wreath

Amelia helped me make this sunflower wreath for our front door.  It was really easy to make - the petals are cut out of felt and hot-glued onto a paper plate.  While I was cutting the petal shapes, Amelia sat down next to me with her kiddie scissors and "helped" by cutting scraps of felt into little pieces to use as the seeds.  Unfortunately, they were all yellow, so we didn't use them for this project. Then I spread glue on a circle of brown felt, and Amelia filled it up with dried black beans.  She thought that was pretty fun.

We would be willing to make one for anyone who wants one.  Just let us know.

Idea from The Creative Imperative

  1. Oooh..I love it. I could use a new wreath :) I also like new wreaths. I just need to remember to change them out.
