Yarn Wreath Tutorial

Did you guys get a chance to check out my guest post yesterday on Michaela Noelle?

I shared my favorite Christmas project from this year- a yarn wreath. I'd seen different
takes on the yarn wreath out in blog-land this year, but I have to say that the tutorial and wreath
that Joi did was definitely the one that inspired me to get cracking on this project!

Here's the lowdown.



Supplies:
-a couple balls of yarn
-felt squares
-straw wreath
-push pins
-fresh pine trimmings

When you get started, leave the straw wreath in its plastic wrapper.
This makes things a bit neater as you wrap the yarn around.


And yes, you do see a glass of white in the background!
 That's always a necessity when it comes to me and crafts :)

Next up? Wrap the yarn around the wreath!
It's a little time consuming, but definitely easy. Here's my almost-finished product.


Then, I simply cut some large circles out of felt squares in a spiral shape.
I folded each spiral into a flower shape and pinned each onto the wreath with a tack.


I then stuck in a few branches of fresh tree trimmings and, voila!
You've got a Christmas yarn wreath.


I put the wreath in our kitchen on a door that goes into our sunroom.
It's the perfect thing to spruce up the area in a cozy, Christmas way!!



So there you have it! The fun thing is this wreath could be made not only as
a Christmas wreath, but a fall wreath or even a winter wreath!

In fact, I may just pull out the fresh pine and throw in some blue colors and
call it my January wreath!! : )

Four more days till Santa!! Are we ready??

  1. I think changing out the color of the flowers is a great way to keep the wreath up longer! Yours looks gorgeous. I bought all the supplies a while back, but billable hours keep getting in my way of doing it! And I'm with you -- wine + crafts = the only way to go!
