DIY Felt Flag Wreath
Because my Valentine’s Day wreath and St. Patrick’s Day wreath was so easy. I thought it would be perfect to do the same concept for a Flag Wreath that I could use for Memorial Day / 4th of July! This is a perfect craft to do while watching TV. Items Needed (full retail prices noted in bold):
3/4 Yard (each) of Red , White, and Blue Felt — $4.99 a yard
- Flat Circle Shaped Foam Wreath – $10.29
- Straight Pins (I bought 2- 200 count packs) — $3.49
- 12 inch Ribbon (for hanging) — $1 or so, you can buy just a portion of ribbon at JoAnn’s instead of an entire roll!
- 3-inch diameter cup (to help measure the circles)
- Wooden Stars – $3.49
- White Acrylic Paint / Glitter Acrylic Paint – 99 cents each
I found all the items needed at my local JoAnn Fabrics store. Save up your coupons to save money! Don’t have a coupon? Download the Jo-Ann Fabrics app and download coupons while standing in line!

Using a marker, measure out all your circles on your felt fabric. Try to maximize the number of circles within your space.
Once you have all your circles marked, cut out all the circles of felt.
Note: It’s okay if you see some of your “marker” lines on the circle.
Take 1 circle of felt — fold in half — then, fold in half again. Then, take one of your straight pins and push thru the bottom (see pictures for reference below).
Push felt piece into foam.
Blue should be 1/4 of the wreath, similar to a flag. Then alternate red and white to make the “stripes” of the flag. Fully cover the front and sides of the wreath. Keep repeating to fully cover the sides and front. It might not seem “pretty” at first, but trust yourself and keep going!
You do not need to do the back of the wreath since no one will see it. If you want to completely do the back too, you will probably need additional fabric.
Wooden Stars — I painted 2 layers of White Acrylic Paint on my Stars. The paint dried pretty quickly. Then, I applied 1 clear glitter coat over the white. Let dry.
With a glue gun, glue the wooden stars onto your wreath!
Once complete, fold your ribbon in a loop and pin to the back of the wreath. I put several pins to ensure it stays connected since I will be hanging mine on our front door.
