Yarn wreath :: Yes, I can finish a project!

I saw this yarn wreath on Pinterest a while back and once I found some tutorials I decided it was do-able. It turned out to be pretty fun. And, I finished it (!) in only a month! Ha.

I used these tutorials:

Supplies:

  • Wreath form
  • Yarn (The wreath I saw on Pinterest used shimmery yarn – I didn’t. I’m cheap.)
  • Pearly stem thingies from the floral department
  • Yellow felt sheets
  • Glue gun and glue sticks

Wrapping the wreath took about two hours one night, while watching TV with Garret. I got embarrassingly tangled in the yarn at first, until I stopped being lazy and started putting the whole thing of yarn all the way through and around the wreath form with each wrap.

    So cute!!!! How did you do the flowers?

    • Thanks! For the flowers, I just used those second two tutorials I mentioned at the top. The roses were harder than the poms for me – the poms are really easy and fun to make!

  2. It looks great! I love the pearl accents on it. Congrats on finishing a project. Don’t you hate it when the tutorials make you wait a month 😉
