Yarn wreaths are SO simple to make and are so pretty!  I absoluteIy adore them.  Adore. Adore. Adore.  This colour combination was inspired by our cold winters of ice, snow, and crisp blue skies, but you can use any colours that you like!

I have put together a quick tutorial so you can make your own yarn rosette wreath too!  I do caution that this project is a little tedious.  The wrapping of the yarn made me a little cross eyed 😉 and I did burn my fingers with my glue gun, and I *might* have gotten pretty engrossed in this project (I did NOT take this in the van with us on the way to Starbucks this afternoon.  I wouldn’t do that.  Nope. haha) Tedious as it was, I think the results are worth it!

All the Rosettes!

The little rosettes are so gorgeous on the yarn wreath base.  I just love them.  You can add as many as you like too…wouldn’t this wreath look so pretty covered in them?!

Make Your Own Wreath Hanger with Yarn

I also made my own wreath hanger.  I just braided the yarn I had, and as you can see, I glued on 3 teeny rosettes.  I think it finishes it off nicely!  Whew.  All done.  I also made one for my Valentines Day wreath, so you can see that here!

I hope you make a wreath for your home!  They’re just so welcoming and pretty!

How to Make a Yarn Rosette Wreath

With just a few simple supplies, you can make this pretty Yarn Rosette Wreath for your front door!  Have fun with colours and make it your own!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 16 inch styrofoam wreath
  • 1 1/4 balls of yarn (each ball measured 150m)
  • about 4 sheets of felt for the rosettes (in different colours)

Instructions

  1. Start winding the yard 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.  But you can make it more rustic if you wish!
  2. The tricky part about this type of precise winding is how the end parts didn’t match up – as you can see in the picture below.
  3. What to do!?  Don’t sweat it!  Even though they don’t match up, it still worked out okay, because I wound 2 layers of yarn around the wreath.  Once you have done 1 layer, at this point you can decide whether you need to add another layer.  Mine needed one, and as tedious as it was, it was a good decision.
  4. Here is what it looks like all wound up.  You can’t really tell where my little mess was.  And I ended up covering that spot with the rosettes anyway.

How to make the felt rosettes:

  1. Now for the rosettes.  I also made rosettes for my Christmas stockings.  But I’ll post this how-to again here, only because it is SO much easier to work with felt.
  2. Basically cut out a circle and make the edges wavy.  The bigger the circle, the bigger the rosette.  My largest flowers are made from 1 full sheet of 9×12 felt.
  3. Then cut a spiral in your circle.  For the largest flowers, I cut into the circle, a little larger than 1 cm.
  4. And wrap.  I make the centres tight, and get a little looser as I go. Once you have your rosette wound, use the little circle centre you are left with at the end of your spiral, and glue it to the bottom of your flower.  Then add them on to your wreath, as you see fit!  Get creative!

  1. Hi Jo! yes, I have my computer with me and but this is the last internet access I’ll have for 2 wks! Your wreath is stunning – I haven’t seen these before. So elegant and understated. Love it!

  2. This is really cute and possibly simple enough for even me to try! I might try my hand at a pink one for my daughter’s bedroom once the kids are back at school.

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. I’m stopping by from Young and Crafty.
    I absolutely love this, and resolve to make one soon! It’ll be my first try with something crafty. 🙂
