Merry & Bright Christmas Wreath
A wreath covered in yarn stirs up warm feelings of home, plus it is a beautiful and inviting decoration to have on your door. I used a thick, chunky yarn to wrap the wreath which allowed me to wrap the wreath in less time than I anticipated. Yay! To make the appliqués shown here, follow this tutorial. Choose your yarn color and appliqués, then get to craftin’!
Supplies & Tools:
- Foam wreath
- Hot glue gun
- Hot glue
- Your favorite appliqués
- Ribbon (optional)
- Begin wrapping yarn around the wreath. I used a piece of tape to hold the yarn, but you could also use hot glue.
- Continue wrapping yarn around the wreath, pulling yarn taut as you wrap. I found it easiest to wrap the yarn around several times, and then tighten several loops at once (similar to rolling up a roll of wrapping paper).
- As you finish wrapping the wreath, wrap the end under the previous loop, pull taut, and then use a little bit of hot glue to secure the end.
- To make a hanger, cut a piece of yarn (length depends on how visible you want the hanger to be), and tie ends in a knot. (For demo purposes, I’m using a contrasting color yarn.)
Note: Use fishing line to make an invisible hanger.
- Wrap the yarn around wreath as shown below.
- Glue appliqués to wreath. Alternatively, use pins so you can reuse the appliqués and the wreath later!
- Now that your wreath is done, hang it wherever you like! (It’s best to hang it inside or in a covered area.)
