“Don’t you think that daisies are the happiest flower?” I have always loved that quote by Meg Ryan’s character, Kathleen Kelly in the movie You’ve Got Mail. I have to say that I totally agree! Airy white and bright yellow, daisies are the essence of Spring and just bring a smile to everyone’s face! This Happy Daisy Wreath is perfect to create for Mom for Mother’s Day because it’s quick, easy and these felt flowers will never die!

Here’s what you will need to make a Felt Daisy Wreath:
- Kunin Classics™ Felt 9” x 12” Craft Cuts – White, Ocean Blue and Apple Green
- Grapevine Wreath 12” – Hampton Art
- Sizzix Big Shot Machine
- Bigz Die Tattered Florals by Tim Holtz by Sizzix
- Sizzix Bigz Die Spring Leaves
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Scissors – I LOVE my Fiskars!
- Buttons – Shades of Yellow (12-16)
- Buttons – Shades of Light Blue (10-12)
Here’s how to create a Wreath that Mom will Love:
To begin making a Happy Daisy Wreath, die-cut two large daisy shapes from Kunin Classics™ White Felt using the tattered florals die with the Sizzix Big Shot machine to layer together for each flower. Trim the Craft Cuts Felt to size with scissors and cut four layers of felt at one time. You will need between 14 and 16 double layer daisies depending upon how full you want your wreath. I added 14 daisies to my wreath.
Die cut 10-12 of the mini daisies from Kunin Classics™ Ocean Blue to fill in the smaller spaces and create another layer of texture.
Die cut 10-12 leaf shapes from Kunin Classics™ Apple Green to accent the white daisies and give the wreath a more realistic look.
Layer two daisy shapes on top of each other securing in the center with hot glue. Add a yellow button to the center of each White Felt large daisy. Attach a light blue button to the center of each Ocean Blue Felt mini daisy with hot glue.
Begin assembly by attaching the large daisies in random order around the wreath, with hot glue.
The die-cut leaves were a bit large, so I cut them in half to become the perfect size to tuck under the petals of the daisies.
To finish the Happy Daisy Wreath, fill in the remaining blank spaces around the wreath with the mini blue daisies.
Felt Daisies are the perfect Mother’s Day gift!
I hope you will use my Happy Daisy Wreath as a jumping-off point to showcase your Kunin Creativity and create something bright and cheerful today!
Make Mom feel even more special and create a daisy corsage from the leftover flowers by hot-gluing the elements together and securing with a large straight pin or even a safety pin.
Felt is an easy, versatile, and forgiving medium that allows you to create affordable but trendy projects whether you are a beginner or an expert crafter!
Did you know Kunin felt is made from recycled plastic water bottles and manufactured right here in the United States? It takes approximately ten plastic bottles to make a pound of fibers. That fiber is used to create many products, my favorite of course is Kunin felt!
