Yarn Wreath

So for the next craft we made for the Christmas Craft Challenge… a super cute black & white wreath.  Remember the inspiration?



When I first saw this, I thought it was just yarn so that’s how we accomplished it but upon further investigation of the inspiration it is a t-shirt that was cut and sewn.  I’m not so handy with a sewing machine so the yarn was a much easier option for us!

SUPPLIES:  Wreath form – Yarn (black and white) – felt for flowers – hot glue gun and glue sticks

Step 1:  Start with one of the yarns and place a dab of hot glue to hold your starting point on the wreath form.  Wrap 4 times around.  Start the next color the same way.  Hide the opposite color underneath the 4 wraps of the new color.  Occasionally add another dab of glue to keep things attached.  Go all the way around the wreath (this took about an hour)


Step 2:  make your flowers – same tutorial I used for Welcome sign from Jones Design Company.  Hot glued onto lapel pins.  Attach pins. 


And voila!  Gorgeous fun wreath!!

This turned out so cute – I would really like to make one for myself as well!  I love the idea of changing out the flowers with the seasons.  And since they’re made on lapel pins you can steal borrow from your wreath for your outfit!  Did you make a wreath during the Holiday season?  Do tell!
