Have you seen those yarn wreathes on pinterest / blogs? I have seen them since I started blogging but have only recently been interested in making one myself. I wanted a wreath to hang outside my apartment door. There’s really no point in having a welcome sign when you live with your parents. :-/
So here’s my version.
How to Make a REUSABLE Yarn Wreath
– Styrofoam Wreath
– Tacky Glue
– Any decorations you’d like
Start by wrapping the wreath in yarn. Don’t do the whole thing until you read the next step.
Adhere magnets on the part of your wreath where you’d like to put flowers / decorations. Make sure you get STRONG magnets – strong enough to work through the yarn. Wrap the yarn over the magnets.
Make your decorations and add magnets to them.
Here’s How to Make Adorable Felt Flowers
Cut a cloud-shaped circle. Next, cut into a spiral, going around the circle at a width of about 1/2 – 3/4 an inch. The bigger the circle, the bigger the flower will be.
Starting at the end, roll your felt strip all the way up and glue the end with tacky glue. It makes an adorable little flower!
I tied a ribbon around my wreath and fed it over my door, tying it to my peep hole which protrudes from my door for some reason. It’s working out very well! I tried to get one of those metal hooks that secures to the top of your door, but they weren’t wide enough to accomodate my apartment. Ribbon is also much cheaper and you can pick any color.
If you use velcro or magnets for the backs of your letters, you can replace those as well. You can now change the colors for any season or holiday simply by making new flowers and adding magnets. Exciting!
