Framed Felt Circle Wreath

Do you ever do a project just leads to another project and then to another one?  That is what happened to me with this project.  I painted the shelf and bench in my mud room a dark brown and right after that I thought that it would be great to decorate the shelf.  It just looked so bare.  Luckily I had all the supplies on hand.

This is how I made it:
I took a straw wreath and yellow felt.  I cut the felt into a lot of circles, lots and lots of circles.

Using a glue gun, I glued the circles onto the wreath.

I continued to glue the felt onto the wreath.  Then I glued some ribbon onto  the wreath, so I could hang it onto the frame.

I then glued the rest of the felt onto the wreath.

To make the frame, I used this tutorial.  I cut the wood so the inside measured 18" for all four pieces.

I stapled the ribbon on the wreath onto the wood frame and let it hang down.

I love how it looks on top of the shelf.
