The Changing of the Wreaths: Part 2

31 Oct
So, it’s officially fall weather around these parts (Yay! Boots!) and, as promised, I’ve got a brand new wreath to greet the season.

I had originally planned to add more flowers, but I was really digging the simplicity so I backed aways from the hot glue gun. What do you think?

Here’s how to make a yarn wreath for your door:

Gather the supplies listed in this post.

Heat up your glue gun and use a small dot of glue to secure the end of your yarn to the form. Pull out a good amount of yarn and cut it from the rest – it’s just easier to work with it this way.

Then, start wrapping the yarn around the form, careful to not leave gaps. You can secure it at places along the way with the hot glue gun. If you’re feeling extra colorful, you can switch up the yarn colors throughout.

This step is going to be time-consuming, I won’t lie. But it’s also really simple so it’s a perfect project to do while catching up on the DVR.

Once your wreath form is covered and secured with a dot of glue, it’s time to add the pretty.

Use your hot glue gun to adhere the flowers (or whatever you’ve chosen to use). Keep stepping back to take a look and determine how full you want your wreath to be.

Then, use a wreath hanger or a pretty piece of ribbon to hang the wreath on your door.

Boom! Bring on the season.

So are you as into seasonal wreaths as I am? Have you dressed your front door for fall?
