Have you seen these yarn wreaths all over pinterest + blogs? I knew I wanted to try to do a Christmas one. It was super easy + didn't take as long as it feels like it will at first. I bought a foam wreath form from Hobby Lobby (don't forget to print off the 40% off coupon!) + some yarn that had some less traditional colors (gray, chartreuse + rhubarb) that I liked. I ordered coordinating felt from here.
Tie or glue the end of the yarn to the wreath form + start wrapping. This skein wrapped around about 3/4 of the way, so if you only want to use one color then buy 2. I finished the top part with some yarn I already had that matched. I actually like the way it turned out + prefer 2 colors.
I used this tutorial to make the felt flowers. I like that you make the outside wavy (i think it looks better than straight cut). I cut leaf shapes out of felt too + then I did a loose back stitch around the edges to add more visual interest + a more finished look.
I used a hot glue gun to glue the leaves + flowers to the wreath. I found some matching flower ribbon in the studio (i think it's by love, elsie [from YEARS ago]) to tie the wreath to the hanger. That's it!
