I love wreaths, the way they just brighten up the front door, whether you’re coming home from a long day of work or welcoming vistors over. These yarn wreaths are easy to do. can be made for under $10, and hold up well for use year after year. It’s been awhile since I made one of these, so I thought one for Valentine’s Day would be perfect. The fun colors can definitely decorate through the spring also, so extra points for Valentin’s Decorations that don’t have to be packed away at the end of February.
Yarn Wreath Tutorial
For supplies you’ll need the following:
Straw wreath with plastic wrap still on it. (Any size although I used a 14″ for this project)
Felt in Several Coordinating Colors
Hot Glue Gun
Wood Letter if desired
Now start wrapping your wreath with your yarn. Make sure you leave the plastic wrapping on the wreath so that straw isn’t sticking out all over the place while you try to wrap. You can either secure the end of the yarn with a knot or hot glue to get started…then just wrap…and wrap…and wrap.
Keep going until the entire wreath is covered. Before you tie-off your yarn thoroughly inspect the wreath to make sure all of the straw underneath is covered.
Then add whatever decorations you’ll be using. I used a white wood letter that stands for “Salvage” and lots of felt flowers. Just attach them using your hot glue gun in any way you feel like!
