yarn wreath

Category: DIY | August 1st, 2011

yep, that’s right. i joined the club and made a yarn wreath. as common as these things are, they are still super cute. one of the easiest DIYs ever. i even made mine to where i can change out the flowers to whatever i feel like, or match with the seasons. i’m cool like that. (plus it saves me from buying the wreath piece each time. all about saving).
here’s how i got started

just some simple supplies. i started out wrapping the wreath very carefully, trying to make it smooth and clean. **bad idea. don’t do it. trust me. haha.

just wrap it around and around and around…not trying to be perfect. so much easier and faster! plus it looks great afterward too. just make sure to cover the whole wreath (at least the parts you can see when hanging). i used pins too (you can use hot glue too) but this way if i ever wanted to change it out i can.

then made a few of these guys….which i also just pinned in place. i love the idea of just changing out the flowers. and i can keep them for later use with other colors too. so many possibilities! ;)

and yay! (i like how you can see P in the reflection). :) she really wanted the camera too….love those cheeks.

now go make a pretty wreath. it’s easy peasy. happy monday everyone!

    Awesome! I just made a mini yarn wreath, but I don’t reallylike it. I didn’t want to use ‘goood’ yarn because if I didn’t like it, i would have ruined good yarn. So your pinning idea is soooo awesome! plus with the flowers! I LOVE IT! Nice job!

    And P is sooo cute! I’m so jealous!

    I LOVE this idea! Especially the little sign you included. I’m pregnant and expecting in late October so I thought it would be perfect to make fall themed flowers and when the baby arrives put a “It’s a Boy” sign with blue flowers.

    Do you have a tutorial on how to make the felt flowers? Or a site recommendation that shows how to make them?

    Thanks for the great idea!

      hey kasey! thanks :) and yay for a little boy!! congrats! the flowers are super easy. i don’t have a tutorial for those on hand, but here’s one that i found that already had a tutorial up and is pretty much the same way i did mine. http://mrspriss.com/2010/03/12/tutorial-felt-rosettes/ (*on mine, instead of starting out with a perfect circle i made mine with wavy edges…if that makes sense) ;) it gives it that multi layer 3D finish. hope this helps!

    So CUTE!!! Your baby is so cute too! I just got all the supplies needed to make my wreath and can’t wait to get started! Your wreath turned out so nice, I hope mine looks as good! I got a wrapped straw wreath from the craft store and I’m just going to keep the wrapping on and wrap my yarn around it, hope that works out (I think it will). Can’t wait to work on it! :)
