- red felt (at least 4 inches by 16 inches)
- wide red ribbon (at least 30 inches long)
- sewing machine or hot glue gun and glue sticks
- measuring tape
Step 1: Measure a piece of felt to 4 inches by 16 inches, and cut it to those dimensions.
Step 2: Fold the red felt in half so it now measures 4 inches by 8 inches.
Step 3: Sew the 4-inch ends together, leaving the eight-inch ends unsewn. Alternately, you can use hot glue to adhere the ends instead of sewing, if you prefer.
Step 4: Turn the felt inside-out so the messy part of the seam is hidden.
Step 5: Cut your ribbon to 30 inches long.
Step 6: Position your felt so the seam is in the middle face-up, running vertically. Run the ribbon underneath the felt (vertically) leaving the ends free.
Step 7: Use the ends of the ribbon to tie a knot in the center of the felt covering the seam.
Step 8: Pull the ends of the ribbon down and snip off the ends in a ‘v’ shape to your desired length.
Step 9: Flip the felt over so the knot is at the back.
Step 10: Hang on your wreath with twine or wire!
