Our front door has been in need of a new wreath for a long time. I finally took the time to make one. I have fallen in love with the many yarn wreaths in blog land and knew that was what I wanted to make. I purchased some Sensations Lovebug yarn at Joann's for a different project (coming up). This yarn is so soft and this color was perfect.
I had a wreath form waiting around to be used so I wrapped the yarn around it. It took two rounds to fill it in nicely because of the texture of this yarn.
make a messCreate~ I dug around for some felt in my craft room. I really didn't have the colors I really wanted but I made do with what I had. I used different size bowls to draw some circles on the felt and I cut them out. I always have my cup of coffee to keep me company.
I cut the circles into swirls.
Here they are all cut up
I also cut some into strips
Fold them in half and hot glue or stitch them~I hot glued~so much easier and quicker
Then cut notches along the folded edge
Roll them up and you have these cuties
Don't forget to hot glue the end
Next~finish the rosettes~I have craft ADD and hop around from one thing to another~maybe one day I will complete them in order~
Roll the felt swirls
Hot glue the end~done~you have a pretty rosette. I made some larger and some smaller ones.
Hot glue your flowers to your wreath.
The finished product. Isn't it sweet?
