DIY Yarn Wreath

I have fallen in love with making wreaths!  Wreaths are a great addition to your home decor that really brightens up the entrance.  Pinterest has so many great ideas for different wreaths.  I was impressed with how easy this wreath was to make!  There are so many choices when making a yarn wreath.  I believe I used a 12″ foam piece.  They have a ton of different sizes and shapes to use.  I think maybe some type of material might be easier to work with, as I felt like it took a lot of wrapping to get the fullness that I wanted.  Some tutorials that I browsed over instructed to do 2 or 3 layers of yarn, but I did not like how that looked.  I kept scooting the yarn over and adding more until I could not see any white.  My favorite part was creating the felt flowers!  They are so pretty!

I had already wrapped my foam wreath before I remembered to snap a picture.  All you do to get started is tie the yarn to the wreath and wrap it tightly and close so that there is no foam showing.

Cut circles out of felt.  I traced a container of disinfecting wipes and it was the perfect size!

To get the felt ready to roll, cut a spiral from the outside in.
