chevron wreath pattern familybringsjoy.comFirst up, you’ll need a template.  Click here to print your template on card stock.  If you missed yesterday’s post with photos of wreaths, you can see them at the end of this post.

Here are the supplies you’ll need:

  • pool noodle and heavy duty shipping tape to make the wreath form
  • scissors (not shown in photo)
  • felt sheets of however many colors you want (see below for how many)
  • hot glue gun

I decided to make a tutorial video for this.  There are 3 parts or 3 videos to the tutorial.  Here’s my disclaimer…It was me, my camera and tripod.  Unfortunately, there will be times where you might not see what I’m referring to {mainly in part 2.}  Please don’t hold that against me. 😉  Hopefully you’ll still be able to understand.

If you don’t glue the chevron pieces too close together you will need 4 sheets of felt of 2 colors {total of 8 sheets, 4 of each color} and 3 sheets of felt for 3 colors {total of 9 sheets, 3 of each color.}  If you like the chevron pieces to not be spaced out as much, then you will need to cut more pieces.  The tracing and cutting process is what takes the longest.  I allotted an hour for this class but should have allotted at least an hour and a half or maybe two hours.

I apologize profusely for the horrible clicking sound in the background of the video. I found it rather annoying myself.  It is the sound my camera makes when it is auto focusing.  I didn’t realize you would be able to hear that.  I now know to turn off the auto focus before videoing.  So sorry…hope you can overlook that, if not, feel free to mute the volume.  Oh and the chime you hear occasionally was my phone notifying me of a text. 😉

Again, here are my chevron wreaths finished hung up in our home:

Tomorrow I’m sharing photos from the class with all the different wreaths everyone made.  They turned out super cute!  Thanks for joining me for this tutorial.  I hope you have fun making one.  Let me know if you have any questions.  I’m off to pick up kids from school.  Have a beautiful day!

Beautify for less,

Those are my old pointe ballet shoes, BTW. 😉  I love sharing my passion of dance with my daughter.

I made this pink and white chevron wreath for my youngest daughter.  We are in the process of redecorating her room.  I surprised her with this little vignette on top of her dresser today.

I made this blue and white chevron wreath for my oldest daughter to take with her to college.  It’s done in BYU colors of course. 😉  This will be the base for the special graduation mantel I’ll be putting together soon.  Only 17 more days until my first born graduates from high school!  Been super busy preparing for all our family {from out of state} coming to see her graduate and celebrate with us.  Just ordered a pergola and new outdoor furniture for the backyard patio.  {I’ll have to share pics of the furniture in a future post.}  Last year we extended the concrete outside our pool yet it’s sat there all blank and empty.  It’s easier on my nerves to spend a smaller amount of money at a time.  One of these days we’ll have a fence around the perimeter of our house.  The shade from the pergola and new comfy outdoor furniture should be the perfect setting for a family graduation celebration.

I know I sound like a broken record…I’m insanely busy…to the point that it’s a miracle my depression hasn’t crept back.  I’m so grateful it hasn’t and pray the overwhelming monster stays away.  The reason I bring this up, yet again, is because I promised I would have a tutorial for this chevron wreath today.  Well, I was lucky to get these photos shot for you.  I hope you don’t mind waiting one more day.  Please…

Please come back tomorrow for the chevron wreath tutorial.

 

Don’t you just love the chevron pattern,
