Here’s what you will need to make a Plaid Hoop Wreath:
- Kunin Premium™ Felt 9” x 12” Craft Cuts – Black, Charcoal, Olive, Kelly Green and Apple Green (one each)
- Kunin Classic™ Felt Yardage – Red (1/2 Yard)
- Design Master ColorTool – Wood Tone Spray Stain
- E6000 Fabri-Fuse fabric glue

- Wooden Greeting – Welcome
- Greenery with Pinecones (2 branches)
- Stabilo Aquarellable White Pencil
- Scissors – I love my Fiskars
- Plain Paper
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Here’s how to make Buffalo Plaid from Kunin Felt:
In a well-ventilated area or outside, spray the embroidery hoop and wooden greeting with Design Master ColorTool Walnut Wood spray stain. Design Master is a professional spray paint that provides excellent coverage and dries super quick.
From yardage, cut a 16” by 16” square of Kunin Classic™ Felt Red, insert in the embroidery hoop, pull gently to make felt taught and then tighten the screw at the top. Trim excess from the back of the hoop.
Measure and cut 2” by 2” squares – nine (9) from Kunin Premium™ Felt Black and twenty-four (24) from Kunin Premium™ Felt Charcoal. I like to use the Stabilo Aquarellable White Pencil to trace onto dark colors of felt. Layout Buffalo Plaid pattern, starting with the black square in the center and alternating with charcoal squares.
Once you are pleased with the composition, attach squares with fabric glue. Let the glue dry. Once dry, carefully trim the edges.
Draw simple tree shapes on plain paper, cut out and fit on to the front of the hoop. Then trace trees onto Kunin Premium™ Felt Kelly Green, Olive, and Apple Green. Cut out and attach to hoop with fabric glue.
To finish, attach faux pine greenery, pine cones and a burlap bow to the top center of the hoop wreath with the glue gun and glue sticks.
