So I have totally been swept up with the yarn wreath obsession. I have been pinning all sorts of beautiful ones and could hardly wait to make my own. (btw... follow me on Pinterest here)
Here are some of my current obsessions:
Aren't these just adorable?!? Holly made a super cute one for Middle Man's Birthday party here. So I decided to try my hand at it.
I started with a simple foam wreath and wrapped the heck out of it with yarn. It took me almost an hour of PURE wrapping (while watching Bachelor Pad of course) to get it all covered. I decided to wrap it completely twice to make sure I covered any holes or gaps that was left out the first time.
Then on to make the flowers. I broke out my trusty gathering foot. If you dont have one of these and you make a lot of ruffles...YOU NEED ONE!!
It does this for you without ANY effort at all. Trust me...If I can do it so can you.
Pretty pretty ruffles... I wrap this long ruffle around and sew it down on a circle piece of felt and add a decorative button in the middle.
I made a couple more ruffle flowers and one mustard felt flower and hot glued them on.
I have to tell you.... I kind of LOVE it!
no...its NOT going to sit on my floor. I have big plans for this little wreath but it will be revealed soon!
Hope ya'll had a great weekend. If you attended Blog Sugar I'm totally jealous and want to hear all about it!!
