Yarn wreath

Today’s Pinterest project was inspired by tons of yarn wreaths I have pinned on Pinterest.  There are so many out there that I love, but the one that drew my attention was the fall yarn wreath that Tonya at Love of Family and Home created.  I loved the colors of her wreath and knew that a gray wreath was perfect.

So I set out to make my own yarn wreath.  I recently got an opportunity to try out a new online craft website called Consumer Crafts.    Wow, I was amazed when I checked out their website.  I had a hard time choosing what to buy as they have so many choices!  Think your local craft store online with even MORE options and great prices!  Many of their prices were even lower than you can find in a store.

Ordering from their site was very easy (once I made up my mind) and I got my supplies in less than a week.

Yarn wreath

I purchased a 10 inch straw wreath, gray yarn, and some premium cream yarn.

Making a yarn wreath is not hard at all, but it is time consuming.  So put on a movie or catch up on your favorite show and wrap your wreath.

I found it easier to cut off a portion of yarn off the skein and wrap that piece, glue it and then do another long piece instead of trying to work with wrapping with the entire skein in hand.

I wrapped and wrapped and wrapped!

And finally was done.

I wanted to do an accent with the white yarn.  This is really soft twisted yarn.  I wrapped it in an argyle pattern on top of the gray yarn.

Finally the yarn part of my wreath was done.  I wasn’t sure what I wanted to add – felt flowers or faux flowers, but I dug in my stash and found the perfect reddish/orange faux flowers to use so decided to use those for now.

I just arranged a few of the flowers together and secured them with some floral tape (that sticky green floral tape) and then secured them to the wreath with the same floral tape.  That way I can easily change them up if I want to do spring flowers or something different.

I hung it on my bathroom door for now (since that room is gray) and I love the colors and fall look it gives to that room/door.

I also love the colors.  The flowers are deep reddish orange and just go perfect with the gray and cream.  I also think cream flowers would look great, maybe for winter?

So my first yarn wreath turned out well!  I would love to make another one sometime in a different color – maybe stripes of different colors of yarn, felt flowers, etc.?  So many ideas out there.
