DIY Yarn Wreath

With my ever growing love of Pinterest I have taken to crafting.  This is my first wreath ever.  It's so simple and I think so cute.

Here how you do it:

You need a wreath form, either foam or this "hay-ish", "straw-ish" kind, yarn, felt and hot glue.

I don't have pictures of the process, but here how it goes.  Wrap the wreath form in yarn!  If you get the kind I did, leave the plastic wrap on it.  It'll save a huge mess.

For the flowers, cut a square out of felt.  Then cut a circle as large as possible.  Then cut that circle into a spiral.  Then roll the felt up starting with the skinny end...pull it tight while rolling up.  Then tack down with how glue.

Spray paint a wooden letter and attach with hot glue, if initials are your style.

Here's one I made for my mom.

This is just a starting point.  You can wrap the wreath in millions of ways and dress it up like crazy.  Give it a try, you'll have so much fun.
