Upcycled Rainbow Scrap Wreath

Sharing is caring!

My Upcycled Rainbow Scrap Wreath with Kunin Felt is a bright and colorful project to celebrate Earth Day! Did y'all know that Kunin® Brand Felt recycles tens of thousands of plastic bottles every year to create their Craft Cuts Felt Sheets and Felt Yardage? Well, they absolutely do, and I am excited to have the opportunity to work with them for the past five years.

Here's how to create a Rainbow Wreath from Scraps of Felt:

Did you ever wonder what five years of collecting bits, pieces and scraps of Kunin Brand Felt looks like? Well, just like this giant bin in the center of my studio. I never throw anything away, because when I do, then that's exactly when I will need it. Does this happen to you too?

STEP ONE

To begin the Upcycled Rainbow Scrap Wreath, gather all supplies. Remove the label from the embroidery hoop. Organize all of the colors of the Kunin® Classic™ Felt scraps.

I used ALL of the colors I had, but this wreath would be fun to do in rainbow order or even ombre.

STEP TWO

For this project, I used the 9″ width of the Kunin® Classic™ Felt Craft Cuts, so I made a stack of bits and pieces that were big enough. Randomly cut the scraps of felt into strips, some skinny and some fat, with scissors. For this 10″ hoop I cut approximately 100 strips from my scrap felt.

STEP THREE

Start tying the strips of Kunin® Classic™ Felt around the embroidery hoop in double knots. Use the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock marks as a starting point. Continue working around the entire hoop, pushing the strips together to get as many tied on as possible.

The more scrap strips tied onto the hoop the fluffier the wreath will be. To finish the Upcycled Rainbow Scrap Wreath, tie a ribbon hanger onto the screw at the top of the embroidery hoop.

Quick and Easy Upcycled Rainbow Scrap Wreath

I hope you will use my Upcycled Rainbow Scrap Wreath with Kunin Felt as a jumping-off point to showcase YOUR earth-friendly craftiness. Mini embroidery hoops tied with scraps of felt would make perfect napkin rings or even ornaments.
