Yarn Wreath

November 4, 2013

Hello!

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I love wreaths.  If you’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting my house, you’d know I have a wreath on ALMOST every door (inside and outside).  And we have a lot of doors.  🙂  I can’t help but make wreaths.  They bring me joy like nothing else does.  As I sit down to write this, I worked on three wreaths today.  How exciting is that?   The wreath I’m going to share with you today is my new Yarn Wreath!  It was time consuming, but so easy.  Check it out.

Supplies:
-Foam wreath form
-Scrap fabric (I used white burlap)
-Yarn (Length depends on size of wreath form)
-Straight Pin (to anchor fabric and yarn)

Directions:
1. Wrap foam wreath form with scrap fabric.  I tore my white burlap into 2-3 inch strips and wrapped the wreath until it was fully covered.  My reason for this step is to cover the green foam of the wreath.  It makes the yarn not have to be PERFECT.  Choose a color fabric that matches your yarn so they blend together.

2. Find a starting point.  Attach your yarn to the wreath form, either with a pin or glue.  Wrap your yarn until the entire wreath is covered.  This could take hours, but be patient.  You’ll be happy with the outcome.
