Did y’all know that Kunin® Brand Felt recycled hundreds of thousands of plastic bottles every year to create their Felt Craft Cuts and Felt Yardage? Well, they absolutely do, and I am excited to have the opportunity to work with them for the past five years. My Rainbow Butterfly Wreath with Kunin Felt is a bright and colorful project to decorate your door or garden1
Time: 30 Minutes
Skill Level: Beginner
YOU WILL NEED FOR RAINBOW FELT BUTTERFLY WREATH:
- Kunin® Classic™ Felt Craft Cuts 9” by 12” – Fuchsia, Red, Candy Pink, Orange, Yellow, Gold, Apple Green, Lagoon, Peacock Blue, Bright Lilac, Orchid
- E6000 Fabri-Fuse Fabric Glue by Eclectic Products
- Grapevine Wreath Form – 16”
- Sizzix Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
- Sizzix Bigz Die Tim Holtz Alterations – Easter Elements
Gather all supplies. Measure and cut two strips 3” wide by 9” long from each color of Kunin® Classic™ Felt.
Fold both strips of felt in half and sandwich them in the Sizzix Big Shot Machine over top of the Butterfly portion of the Die with the cutting plates.
Cut out four Butterflies from each color of Kunin® Classic™ Felt. Fuchsia, Red, Candy Pink, Orange, Yellow, Gold, Apple Green, Lagoon, Peacock Blue, Bright Lilac, and Orchid.
Lay out grapevine wreath on work surface and starting with the Red Kunin® Classic™ Felt, dry fit all the Butterflies around the wreath in rainbow order. Four butterflies in each color were too many and looked crowded, so three was the magic number to create this Rainbow Felt Butterfly Wreath!
Using E6000 Fabri-Fuse Fabric Glue, attach each butterfly, one at a time, to the grapevine wreath. Set aside on a flat surface and allow the glue to dry.
I hope you will use my Rainbow Felt Butterfly Wreath project as a jumping off point to showcase your Kunin Creativity to create a bright and colorful piece of home décor! Switch up the colors to match YOUR preferences, the possibilities are endless.
