    Folded Wreath Christmas Ornament

    Okay here it is. I made one of these for the Christmas Ornament Swap this year and had many requests for the directions. I decided to make a tutorial so everyone could have them. Hope I made it easy enough to follow and enjoy.

    Materials needed:

    16-20 4 inche squares depending on how full your want the wreath. A minimum of 8 is needed for each side.
    2 buttons or other embelishment of your choice for center
    2 Cardboard circles approximately 3-4 inches around
    Something to make loop to hang ornament
    Glue fun and extra sticks
    Iron



    Step 1. Start by folding square in half on the diaganol to form a triangle.

    Step 2. Now fold each outside point up to meet with the top point. This should once again give you a square.

    Step 3. Now fold the outside raw edges in to meet the center line. This should give you something that resembles a tiny kite.

    Step 4. Start glueing all the now folded pieces to the cardboard circle until you have a full wreath. repeat with second cardboard circle and remaining pieces. You should now have two full wreaths.

    Step 5. turn over one of the completed wreths and glue the loop to it. Now glue the other completed wreath onto this with the wrong sides together. You should now have a double sided wreath. Continue by glueing the buttons or other embelishments to the center of the wreath. You know have a completed ornament. Enjoy your new ornament.

    Thanks for this tutorial. I think I will make these for my Bee friends. It looks like something that could go together quickly and is quite beautiful.

    I've done something very similar with paper, but never thought of using fabric. Thanks for the idea!

    Thanks so much, I always give an ornament to my sister's grandchildren, and now, great-grandchildren and needed a new idea for this year.

    Love the concise easy instructions the photos made it make complete sense.. at first I thought uh oh this is going to be hard then you glued the first one and it was oh that isnt hard at all. just looks complicated which is nice also when gifting them .. I will surely make a few of these and I would think the cardboard helps them stay firm do you cover the cardboard ever first so its finished in the back too? I like the idea of doubling them but if you finish the back then it would be unnecessary and well faster. I could see a yoyo with a button in the center aso.

    This would also be fun to do with spring fabrics to make flower ornaments or any other season would do.
