Tutorial Tuesday: Christmas Wreath

Something to create now so it will be ready in time for Christmas decorating is this easy to do yarn wreath!

Need:

  • Styrofoam round wreath (or any shape you like)
  • Yarn in your color choice ( I chose this fluffy red yarn I liked)
  • Scrapbook paper to coordinate with your wreath (for the letters)
  • Mini Clothes Pins
  • Twine
  • Felt (optional)

Directions:

  1. Take your yarn and tie a knot around your styrofoam, and then start wrapping and winding, wrapping and winding. Yup, it takes a little patience to get around the wreath. Nothing you can’t do while watching “Grey’s Anatomy” 🙂

2.  Tie off when you get all the way around the wreath.

3.  Measure approximate length of twine, cut, and tie the ends around your wreath.

4.  I used my Silhouette Machine to cut out the letters, but you can always just print them out in a word program, trace them onto some scrapbook paper and cut them out!

5.  Take your mini clothes pins and use them to hold up your letters!

6.  I then added some felt flowers based on this tutorial but not sure what I’m liking….what’s your opinion?

                            Option 1                                                      Option 2

                     Option 3

Hang it on up and enjoy!

    I love the idea of the mini clothes pins holding the letters “JOY”, you could easily change the words. Cute idea!

  12. Coley says:

    Adorable! Option 2 is my fave.

  13. What a fun and “simple to make” decoration! With my hectic life, I really like simple. 😉

    Thanks for linking to my party. It’s fun to see what you link up each week.

  14. Love the yarn – super cute – and the clothespins are adorable! Thanks so much for joining the Sunday Showcase – I greatly appreciate it. I have featured this today – stop by and grab a featured button if you like. Hope you have a fabulous week ~ Stephanie Lynn

    Totally sweet wreath!

  16. I like option 2 or 3 best, but I think those particular flowers make it look more Spring-y, rather than Christmassy, despite the colors. If you could make the flowers removable, you could clip on different words (or die-cut shapes, like snowflakes) and floral accents throughout the year for a more versatile wreath! “Love” for V-Day, “Spring” for Spring, “Boo!” for Halloween, etc. Even “Grats!” to celebrate an achievement in the family!

  17. Just wanted to let you know that I featured this today on FTF! Grab a featured button if you would like one and don’t already have one! Thanks and Merry Christmas!!
