Happy (almost) spring!
I’ve been lagging on making a new spring wreath for my door – after I took down my Christmas wreath, I just hung my old jingle wreath as a placeholder. But I finally got my butt in gear and made a new wreath!
I once again used my straw wreath form that I’ve used countless times (as you can tell from the Sharpie marks) and some leftover yellow yarn I found while cleaning out my room at my parents’ house.
Hot glue the end of the yarn and start wrapping! I had forgotten HOW LONG wrapping a wreath form in yarn takes!! I think it took me about 1.5 hours over 2 days. I wanted to make sure I covered the black markers completely since I was using such a light colored yarn.
Then I gathered some leftover burlap and yellow fabric from my burlap & flower wreath. I really liked how the burlap flowers turned out from here but when I actually tried to make them, I wasn’t very successful =/ I don’t know what went wrong! But maybe my burlap knit was too loose… So I just made up some flowers of my own!
It started out with the same method as the original link, but I just twisted and hot glued whenever I felt it looked pretty. I think the yellow ones are a little flat but they were a lot easier to work with than the burlap! Burlap sheds EVERYWHERE.
And used the same yellow fabric to hang it up!
I took these pictures at night when I finished and hung the wreath. I literally take my floor lamp outside and take pictures But I like the warm tones!
Then I took some more pictures in the daylight:
I love it!
Best thing about this was that it was all free! I already had the wreath form, yarn, burlap, yellow fabric and hot glue gun! If you didn’t have the supplies, it would probably cost you about $7-10. Still cheap and fun!
