CRAFT :: Summer Yarn Wreath

Hey there everyone!

I have a thing with making wreaths (apparently) and wanted to share with you the latest one I made for our front door. I needed to make a new wreath to match my new "Patio Makeover" and this yarn I purchased awhile back, reminded my of summertime in a pool when I saw it. So I decided it matched close enough with the new color scheme I had going on outside with the patio (navy, turquoise blues and white), so a wreath was in the makin! ;)

I have shared with you recently how to make this type of yarn wreath when I created one for my daughters Rainbow Loom party, so if you need better instructions, make sure to check this post out to see more details.

You just need to grab a few supplies: a letterboard wreath shape, some yarn, fabric glue or hot glue gun, ribbon, embellishments and scissors.

The first step is to start by gluing the yarn at your starting point. I would glue it down on the back and start wrapping around the wreath form.

Just keep wrapping and wrapping and wrapping . . . all while wrapping the yarn tight together, side-by-side . . . then glue your last strand of yarn down to secure. Cut a piece of ribbon to hang up your wreath & attach.

Next step is to add the embellishments that you chose to adhere to the wreath, I decided to make a couple flower embellishments to add to mine & a tiny feather but feel free to use what you want.

I love making this wreath as it is soooooo easy & quick so you can change out your door wreaths ALL the time. If you want. ;)
