This is a very quick and easy project.  Just gather your materials together, pop in a good movie and make this wreath in about 45 minutes, start to finish.

List of materials:
2 pieces each, 9"x12" felt in 5-6 different colors
Straight pins
9" Styrofoam ring
Something approximately 2.5" round to use as a template
(I used a seasoning salt container)
 1. Trace circles onto felt and cut out.  These don't have to be perfectly round as you can see by mine.
I cut approximately 20-24 circles of each color.

2.  This is what I used as my circle template. 

 3. This is the only shot I got of the wreath form which is what the back looks like.  You could wrap the form with ribbon before putting the felt pieces on if you want a more finished look.

 4.  Fold the circle in half, kind of like a taco shell.

 5. Fold over again.
6. Push straight pin in close to the bottom point. (Please excuse the black looking fingers, I was painting earlier.)

 7.  Push into foam.  After the felt is in kind of fluff open to help hide the pin.

8.  Here is the finished wreath that Randy won.

Luv the colors. I like that it uses pins, cause if you're like me.. you may decide to reuse the form. Ur.. maybe I'm the only one that does that.. LOL>
