Greetings friends and fellow DIYers! It has been a while since I have been in touch with you all. I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful and that your holidays are shaping up to be happy and healthy!
This yarn wreath project was the result of me finally going NUTTY over Thanksgiving break and feeling like I JUST HAD TO MAKE SOMETHING. I went (by myself) to Michael’s on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and walked around for 2 hours. I didn’t even mind that it was crowded. I was so thrilled to be there!
It took me forever to pick out my yarn colors, but when I did – I finally was able to pull the whole thing together.
Yarn wreaths are so fab and easy to make. All you do is find a foam form (say that five times fast) that you like and then wrap several layers of yarn around. Make sure you wind your yarn into a ball first, it is easier that way.
In this case, I wrapped a layer of cheaper yarn around the foam first to make it thicker and then wrapped the more expensive yarn on top. Once you have completed that – all you need is your decorative items, a bow and a hot glue gun to attach everything!
This wreath took me two hours and I watched a Christmas movie while I did it. Talk about some seriously needed craft therapy! It was the most relaxing thing I’ve done in a long time.
Now it hangs on my office door. Just a little reminder of how much I still love (and need) DIY.
