Sunday funday! I’m posting a tutorial today on how to make EASY yarn wreaths. I am now addicted and will probably be making one for every holiday. They are so easy, economical and the possibilities are endless with so many types / colors of yarn out there. I would say total time takes probably an hour, depending on how fast you can twist the yarn and how complicated your embellishments are.
Here’s how you create one.
First, you will need a straw wreath. They come in different sizes, this one is a 10″ from Hobby Lobby. NOTE: Leave the plastic wrap on! It is slick and is easier to twist the yarn around.
If you want just one solid color yarn wreath, you will need one bigger spool of yarn. I got mine at Hobby Lobby for $2.99. If you want to incorporate other colors, get 2 or 3. They also make yarn spools with various colors mixed in, like on my fall wreath so you don’t have to worry about buying multiple colors! (See…easy so far.)
You will also need a few pieces of felt squares, depending on how many flowers you want (one felt square cut in half makes two big flowers), a thick piece of ribbon to hang it with and whatever else you want to use for embellishments.
To start, take the end of your yarn and knot it on the back. Start looping the yarn through the wreath over and over again.
