Supplies I Used:
- Wreath Form - once again I bought a Christmas grapevine wreath and ripped off the decorations, you can't beat $3!
- Lion Brand Yarn (read the rest of the post to see why I am so specific!)
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
- Circle Stencils of Varying Sizes (bowls, CD, etc.)
- Disappearing Ink Marker
See how cheap and wimpy the crappy yarn made this look? Plus it took WAY long since I used such thin thread and it kept getting knotted & tangled as I was taking it out of the ball which made me so angry I eventually just cut the knots out. I did NOT like how this looked so when I went to buy more felt for the Patriotic Wreath I picked up some Lion Brand yarn and OMGoodness what a difference it made! I made sure I bought a fatter and bulkier thread plus this stuff felt soooo soft. It was perfect.
So after re-wrapping the entire wreath, which took half the time and the Lion Brand yarn did NOT knot up or tangle once, I was ready to attach my felt flowers. Since I had leftover Navy Blue felt & ribbon from the Patriotic Wreath, I was able to use those along with some yellow felt I found in the scraps bin for cheap! There are TONS of felt flower tutorials out there, I pinned quite a few on Pinterest so check out my DIY board here to see how I made the felt flowers. I had a broken pearl necklace thanks to Little Miss, so I hot glued the pearls into the centers of my flowers. I glued all the flowers down, attached the ribbon, and TA DAH! I have my first Yarn Wreath with Felt Flowers.
I wish I had a better camera and some photography skills because these photos do not do this wreath justice. I love how simple it is and how you can use it both indoors or outside!
Well now I have an issue, I have no need for a wreath indoors and my Patriotic Wreath is hanging on my front door. So I have decided to do a GIVEAWAY for this wreath! I have quite a few more followers lately so I wanted to show my gratitude :) There are 2 options for the wreath, you can stick with the Navy Blue & Yellow flowers -OR- I can replace the Yellow flower with an identical Light Pink flower. The winner will get a choice of Navy Blue/Yellow flowers or Navy Blue/Light Pink flowers.
