Fall felt flower wreaths

After taking down my Halloween decorations, my house looked a little bare. I saw these cute wreaths on Pinterest and thought they seemed easy (and cheap!)

It takes a couple hours per wreath, depending on how fast you roll. Here's what you need:

Grapevine wreath
Fall floral stems (mine have orange and red berries)
Felt in 3/4 different colors
hot glue

Start by cutting out squares from the felt. Make them all different sizes. Then cut a spiral pattern out of the square. It should look like this:
Starting at the outside edge, roll it up. I kept a finger on one end to make that bottom flush, and then the "petals" spread out on their own. Secure the inside end (which is kind of rounded, based on how you cut it) to the bottom of the flower with some hot glue or double-sided tape.
After you have a variety of sizes and colors of flowers, just glue them on to the wreath and stick in the floral stems. Easy peasy. They bring some color into my otherwise cool dining room.
