I've been wanting to make a yarn wreath for awhile now. I really admire the wreaths from Itz Fitz, but really don't want to spend the money. So, I researched yarn wreaths on the web and found that it is not that hard to make one myself! I got the wreath from a dollar store, used some yarn from my old knitting days, and bought felt to make the flowers (per this tutorial). The result?
I'm pretty darn proud of myself, not bad for a first try. :)
Wrapping the yarn around the foam wreath was a bit tedious, so since the yarn is neutral in color, I came up with the idea of just pinning the flowers to the wreath and changing them out for seasons and holidays. For instance, I want to make more orange flowers and add some black ones for Halloween. Too fun, and very easy peasy (it literally took me two hours)!!
