Sweet Christmas Yarn Wreath

Everywhere I turn, I see cute yarn wreaths, and being a wreath lover myself, I had to try one.  I wanted it to be part of my Christmas decore, which I finally started putting out today.

Here is my Christmas yarn wreath:

Since there is not a huge amount of Christmas green or red in my house, I'm having to be a little creative with Christmas decore, opting for white, tan, and maroon for this wreath.

The process is quite simple: take an inexpensive wreath from Hobby Lobby and yarn you already luckily have...

...and wind it around the wreath.  I was surprised at how long this took, and I didn't worry about "winding it pretty" until near the end when I was doing the top layer that would show.

For the embellishment, I cut out some felt circles.

I put the smaller circles on the larger ones, pinched up the bottoms, and ran a needle and thread through them.  Then I pulled it tight and tied it off so that it gathered up nicely like a flower.  (I can't remember what magazine I saw this in recently....maybe Southern Living?  Probably.)

I used hot glue to attach some little glittery berries that I pulled off another holiday stem.  I also glued some berries in a circle along the wreath.

Subtle.  Christmas.  Easy!
