Springtime Yarn Wreath

 

Springtime Yarn Wreath

Happy Spring!  I made another yarn wreath!  My obsession with them continues! But there is something so pretty about yarn wreaths, and I love the ones I made for Valentines Day and for Winter.  So, I thought I needed a bright, pretty one for Spring!

The inspiration came when I saw some green grass coloured yarn, then I spotted these cute little toadstools at Pier 1, and the felt I found at Michaels. So, I grabbed my glue gun and got to work!  (Oh glue gun, how I was missing you, but I was afraid of you.  You’ve scarred my skin one too many times.  And this time was no different!  What is it with me and burning my hands!?)

I love how it turned out!

I made another cute little wreath hanger.

I had fun with different flowers.  And added a couple of tiny little yarn balls.

A Tutorial

  • I used a 16 inch styrofoam wreath.  From my experience, these are the best for lining up yarn.
  • This wreath used 1 1/2 balls of yarn, so make sure you buy enough yarn from the same dye lot.  (Each ball measures 150m.)
  • How to wind the yarn around the wreath:   There are a number of options on how to do this.  I chose to do my winding quite precise, with each string lining up neatly with the next.  I wrap it twice.  It’s tedious, but the end result is worth it!
  • You will also need about 3 sheets of felt for the rosettes.  For the flowers I made, I used 2 sheets of orange, 1 sheet of white.  For the flowers, I adapted the tutorials from the blog Craft Snob.  Her tutorials are excellent!  Once you get comfortable with how to make the rosettes, you can get creative and make your own style of flowers!
  • For the yarn balls, I used 4 mini styrofoam balls, and wrapped them with yellow yarn I had already.
  • Then add little embellishments to make your wreath beautiful!  I loved these little toadstools the moment I laid eyes on them at Pier 1.
  • Then for the finishing touch, I made my own wreath hanger.  I just braided 3 string of yarn, wrapped it around the wreath, tied a knot, then added my own little flower!  Too cute!
