Radiant Orchid Felt Butterfly Wreath

Have you seen what the color of the year is?  

It's Radiant Orchid.

It's a really pretty, pinky purplish color.  But it's not a color I would normally use in my home.
Since I liked to only do projects that I can in someway use in my home, I was rather stumped coming up with a project to do with this color.

Then I decided to update the wreath on my front door.


I started with a burlap wreath.  I didn't take photos of this step.  Here is a tutorial if you need one.  
I also added a few loops of gold polka dot ribbon.  


The orchid felt I bought from my local craft store was really flimsy so I used spray adhesive 
to attach it to some stiff white felt. 


I drew a butterfly on some paper and then used it as a template to cut out some butterflies with the stiffened radiant orchid felt.  


I thought the butterflies were a little plain so I gave them a little pizzazz with 
gold and white puff paint polka dots and lines.  


I hot glued some clothespins to the bottom of the butterflies.


I clipped the butterflies to the wreath loops.  


I added a gold glitter initial and some burlap ribbon to hang the wreath.

Still want more Radiant Orchid project ideas?
