In the midst of this busy time of year, it’d be really easy to reuse my winter wreath from last year. I actually really like it still! The only problem is that it is red, and so is our new front door. Guess all I could do is make a new one, right?
I love yarn-wrapped wreaths. They’re clean and stylish. Doesn’t hurt that they don’t break the bank to make!
This year I spent $6 total on the wreath: $2 for a straw wreath form, $3 for white yarn, and $1 for gold berries, all from Hobby Lobby. Other than that I used some purple and green felt that I already owned, and a scrap of green ribbon to hang it at the right height on the door.
Making it was a pretty simple process. Wrap the wreath in yarn. Make some felt flowers (I didn’t follow a tutorial, but hereare some if you want to check them out). Cut out some leaves out of felt. (I went the extra inch and used some thread to stitch veins on them, which adds a nice touch, I think.) Hot glue everything together. Done!
I really love how this wreath turned out. While I love Christmas, I wanted to make a wreath that I could leave up all winter without just looking like I forgot to take down Christmas decorations.
Just one more pretty picture of my wreath, okay?
Okay, fine, one more. This is the last one, I promise.
