How To: Summery Yarn Wreath

Remember the last wreath on our door?Spring Wreath

Well, it was nice while it lasted, but I got bored of it. So, now we’ve got something new going on out there…Wreath 012This wreath was super easy (and fun!) to make and because there are probably a million tutorials out there on how to make something similar, I’ll give you the simple FOUR WORD how-to. With any luck, this will take you 4 minutes to read and you can spend the rest of your day dreaming of what color yarn you’ll use for your own. So, here we go:GatherGATHER your supplies. I used a 16″ foam wreath, three colors of yarn, and a hot glue gun. Oh yeah, and some scissors. GlueGLUE as you go and once you finish a color.WrapWRAP your yarn tightly around the wreath. Choose whatever patterns and stripe sizes you want!Wreath 006And wrap, and wrap, and wrap…Wreath 007HANG that baby on your door!HangOh, and how about a BONUS: I grabbed the “T” we used from our last wreath and re-purposed it to add some interest to this one. Easy peasy (you can find letters at any craft store- I got mine from Michaels).Wreath 012I know it’s kind of summery, but I could eat pumpkin things all year round, so mixing seasons doesn’t send me into a tailspin. Within reason, though- I don’t do Christmas music in October. I mean, can we let Halloween and Thanksgiving breathe a little for cryin’ out loud? Ok, coming off my soapbox…

Although it’s kind of an ode to summer, I think the colors play nicely with autumn-y themes as well. Can’t wait to get a pumpkin out there and officially welcome in the fall.summery wreathGo team Autumnal!
