“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, and 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!
Here’s What You Will Need:
- Kunin Classics™ Felt 9” x 12” Craft Cuts – White, Ocean Blue and Apple Green
- Grapevine Wreath 12”; Sizzix Big Shot machine; Sizzix Bigz Die Tattered Florals; Sizzix Bigz Die Tattered Leaves; Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks; Scissors; Buttons in shades of Yellow 12-16; Buttons in shades of light blue 10-12
Time: 2 Hours
Here’s How to Make it
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 28 and 30 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 a random order around the wreath, with hot glue.
The leaves were a bit large, so they were cut in half to become the perfect size to tuck under the petals of the daisies.
Fill in the remaining blank spaces around the wreath with the mini blue daisies.
I hope you will use my Happy as a Daisy Wreath as a jumping off point to showcase your Kunin Creativity and create something bright and cheerful today!
Felt is an easy, versatile and forgiving medium which allows you to create affordable but trendy projects whether you are a beginner or an expert crafter!
You can now find an expanded color line of Kunin® Classicfelt; Kunin® Premiumfelt and Corduroy non-wovens fabrics in cut by the yard at your local Walmart; please inquire as to what is available in your area.
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!
