Spring Yarn Wreath

Yarn wreaths are my new favorites.  I love the endless possibilities.  I have seen them all over blog land and Pinterest.  My new addiction, but I have not made myself an account yet.  I can only imagine all the time I would spend dreaming on there.
With so many fun choices I had a hard time deciding what I wanted to do.
I purchased a straw wreath at AC Moore with a 40% off coupon.  It cost less than $2.  I did not find a yarn I liked so I headed to Joann's.
I purchased this yarn at Joann's.  With the 50%  coupon it was less than $3.  I chose a light green color.  The texture of the yarn seemed perfect for a wreath.

There were perfect floral picks on sale.  I chose a couple with simple small flowers that I could pluck off.  I only used one on this wreath.
I used the whole skein of yarn to make the wreath full and a bit fluffy.
Then I randomly hot glued the floral buds around the wreath.

The spring banner I made with a scrap of fabric I cut into triangles.  I used a Sharpie and wrote the letters on them.
It is a perfect addition to our door.  

This was  thrifty, fun, and super easy.  Yarn wreaths can become addicting.  I am thinking of what I can make next.

Okay, just realized that my comment makes no sense ... so sorry. It was meant for another blogger.

I truly do, though, love your yarn wreath with those pretty flowers. So very springy! I hope you'll hook it up at our link party tomorrow ...

The yarn you choose is so pretty on the wreath. I love the softness of it...and the pennant is adorable.

I absolutely LOVE this wreath. I've see a few with the grassy yarn but I think this angel hair yarn is perfect!!
This wouldn't be necessarily easy for me, but if you have any super simple projects or tips you'd like to share I'm hosting a link party today with a few fellow bloggers. I'd be great to see you linked up. :)
