Pinterest and I go through peaks and valleys...sometimes I can't pin enough and others I don't think about it at all. With Fall here and the holiday season a-comin, we're at a peak.
When I saw that AP at ILYMTC was hosting a weekly link-up to share the Pinterest projects you've made, I knew I wanted to join in the fun! This is my first time to link-up, but I'm sure it won't be my last...this is such a great idea!
I have been loving yarn wreaths lately, so I decided my front door needed one. I chose to combine two of my pins to create my fall-ish yarn wreath!
The supplies are pretty simple: straw wreath WITH plastic left on, yarn, felt for embellishments (1/4 yd is more than enough), and any other add-ons you might like. You'll also need scissors (duh) and a hot glue gun (double duh).
I'm awful at taking pictures when I'm in the process of making something, so let me just tell you...it's easy! Tie the end of the yarn around the wreath and just start wrapping it around the wreath. No gluing necessary. I would advise you to keep the yarn pretty taut or it will start to slide around a bit. You can try to keep it all perfectly aligned if you wish, but I didn't mind mine overlapping. This process gets a little tedious, but it really doesn't take too terribly long.
As for the felt blooms, I followed the tutorial above to a "T', and it worked beautifully! I really like the way they look, and they are incredibly simple to make.
I had burlap left over from this project, so I used that to tie it up on my door.
Here's the finish product...
All in all, this wreath took about 2 hours to complete, and it only cost about $10 with supplies leftover to make more! I made another for my mom already, and I'm working on two more :) I'd call this one a success!
