Yarn Wrapped Fall Wreath

Well, there's not much I love more than the change of seasons and an excuse to browse Pinterest for some great wreath ideas:)

This year, I decided to make my first yarn wrapped wreath. My friend Nicole made one too, so we worked on them together to pass the time!
And it does take time!
Sheesh...you've gotta wrap the yarn one strand at a time around that foam!
But it really is one of the easiest wreaths to make. 
All you need is:

-a skein of yarn
-a foam wreath
-2-3 pieces of felt
-fall sprigs
-time

I started it off by just hot gluing the yarn to the back and wrapping it tightly around the wreath. 

 Because you are wrapping in a circle, you will eventually end up with a slanted wrap, but don't panic! Just overlap the yarn to cover the Styrofoam and you can cover it with the beautiful flowers you are going to make:) 
 When you have completely wrapped the wreath,  hot glue the yarn to the back to seal it off!
For the felt flower decoration, I chose a few colors that I thought went with the yarn and found some cute little fall sprigs to go along!

And here's how it looks on my front door!

I hope this made you brave enough to try your own! If you have any questions, just ask:) 
Happy yarn wrapping!
