I love the bright and colorful hibiscus flowers and monstera leaves that grow wild here in sunny Florida, but they don’t last long once picked. Create a tropical hibiscus wreath with Kunin Felt that will brightly welcome the season without fading in that hot Summer sun! So excited that this tutorial, Create a Tropical Hibiscus Wreath, was featured on Craft Gossip!

- Kunin Classics™ Felt 9” x 12” Craft Cuts – Apple Green and Pirate Green (2 each); Neon Green, Kelly Green, Shocking Pink, Gold and Violet Sky (1 each)
- Americana Acrylic by DecoArt – Forest Green
- Wreath Form – 12” flat

Here’s how to make it:
Download TROPICAL HIBISCUS WREATH PATTERNS print on plain paper and then cut out with scissors. If not already green, base coat the wreath form with Forest Green paint, set aside to dry. Apply a second coat, if necessary.
Apply a small amount of adhesive to the back of each pattern to hold in place while cutting. Cut out the following from Kunin Classics™ Felt: five Apple Green and five Pirate Green monstera leaves; four Neon Green tropical branches; six Kelly Green hibiscus leaves; two Violet Sky and three Shocking Pink hibiscus flowers; five Gold stamen.
Attach the stamens to the center of the hibiscus flowers with a small amount of hot glue, then pinch the center of the flower underneath as the glue sets to create dimension in the finished flower. Using the same technique, adhere the ten monstera leaves to the wreath form with hot glue, again pinching the centers to create dimension.
Continue layering on the tropical branches, finished hibiscus flowers and hibiscus leaves, pinching as you go!
Here is a detailed photo of the finished wreath – look at those colors and that dimension!
