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!
